Hello, thank you for visiting this site.

Are you fascinated by cacti and succulents?

Have you ever wondered how you can flower

your favourites, when to water them, what kind

of compost to use, where to acquire more at

sensible prices or even free?

If the answer to any or all of these questions is yes,

We at the Leicester Branch would be delighted

to welcome you to our meetings.
