Welcome to the Sussex Region
of The British Cactus and Succulent Society

The BCSS is a National Society formed to promote interest in and enjoyment of cacti and succulents. It is organised into a number of geographical regions and there are two Branches in Sussex, see our Arrowzone map.

As well as regular meetings we organise visits to places of interest, nurseries and some of the excellent private collections which are found in the area.

We have also been exploring the possibilities of arranging meetings at different locations throughout the Zone, intended to encourage less experienced growers to attend.

Each year we hold a Zone 12 Convention which and a Zone 12 Annual Show. For details of this year's Convention see our 
Arrowconvention page. Details of the Show will appear as soon as possible.

Sussex has always been a good place to grow cacti and has been home to some major collections. See our ArrowHistory page for more information on the BCSS in Sussex.

You will always be welcome at any Branch meetings. If you can get to any of our venues please come and join us.
