Hello All

Let's try again! We're pleased to announce that the first ever Northern Cactus and Succulent Mart will be held on 24 July 2021 at Carlton Social Club (near the M1 / M62 interchange) from 10am to 2.30pm.

Southfield Nurseries has confirmed their attendance and we'll provide further updates of other growers taking part.

If you'd like to sell privately or commercially, please contact Peter Smith on smipt6@aol.com

We hope to make this a successful annual event.

Yes it will indeed be interesting to learn who has been invited to offer plants for sale at this event.....
As far as I can tell, most southern based growers and nurseries, even those who attended the last National Show, or the last CactusWorld event have not been invited to attend, so it is unlikely to be representative of the plant offerings throughout the UK.
