British Cactus and Succulent Society

Dover Branch
For cactus and succulent enthusiasts of all ages and abilities

Who are we
With well over 100 branches and 19 zones, the BCSS has a presence in most large towns and cities in the UK.

The Dover branch falls into zone 14 of the BCSS, which covers Kent and parts of Greater London.

The branch has been in existence since the 1950s, and has a large, friendly membership of very experienced collectors, along with some just starting out. All our members have their own particular interest area, but they all share a passion for growing these unusual and interesting plants.

We hold monthly meetings in Dover with members from the south-east area. We regularly have guest speakers, quizzes, demonstrations, shows, open days at membersí collections and other social events. At these meetings we also offer plants for sale, hold auctions to raise branch funds, and hold regular mini shows.

We have close relationships with other branches from Kent and Sussex, and actively encourage this cross-participation.

General visitors with an interest in Cacti and Succulents, and members of other branches of the BCSS are always welcome at our meetings.

Please feel free to contact the Dover branch with your questions and we will be happy to help and assist in any way we can.
