There's been very few shows this year but Birmingham Branch have their Show in the autumn and it's good to see that it's going ahead this year. It's on Sunday 3rd October at Birmingham Botanical Gardens, probably the best venue in the country for a Branch Show. It's open from 11am to 4pm, not 3pm as on the website for the Botanical Gardens and the gardens are well worth a visit with plenty to see, the show is in one of the large function rooms leading directly from one of the greenhouses so there's a good proportion of non-cactus visitors and a good chance to promote BCSS membership.
There's three well-known cactus nurseries at the show along with an assortment of members sales plants and it's a large show - 71 classes. What the show needs is good support from members, it just needs each member to enter a few classes and there's free admission to the gardens for everyone entering the show and it's always a good day out. There's a schedule on the Birmingham Branch website with all the details. http://birmingham.bcss.org.uk/wp-conten ... hedule.pdf
