Welcome to Sheffield BCSS
objectives of the British Cactus & Succulent Society (BCSS) are to
promote the study, conservation, propagation and cultivation of cacti
and other succulent plants. Membership of the BCSS is currently about
3,000 and includes the whole range from novice window-sill growers to
experts. Membership of the Society is open to all.
Society was formed in 1983 by the amalgamation of the two major cactus
and succulent societies in the UK, The National Cactus and Succulent
Society (NCSS), and The Cactus and Succulent Society of Great Britain
(CSSGB), both of which had long histories.
Sheffield branch of the BCSS has been in existence since 1946 and is
one of over 90 branches located throughout the United Kingdom. We have
an active programme of local events supplemented by regional and
national events across the country. We are a member of Zone 3 and are
partnered with branches in Bradford, Bridlington, Hull, Huddersfield,
Leeds and York.
We sell the BCSS
information packs. Each pack contains comprehensive cultivation
guidelines and a special membership form entitling you to £2 off your
first years subscription. Info Packs cost £2.50.
