Why not come along to the annual North West Mesemb Show, this being the 14th running of the event at our usual Manchester Branch meeting venue. There will be over 40 show classes to admire as well as a large selection of sales plants from many of our well known nurseries. It is a popular event with exhibitors and visitors alike and offers a chance to catch up with friends, buy plants and admire the wonderful plants that mesembs are.

There are the usual refreshements available from the kitchen through out the day.

In the afternoon there is a digital slide presentation – Speaker and Title – TBC.

Mesembs grow in habitat in Southern Africa and are classified under hundreds of genera. Whilst Lithops and Conophytums are the most well known, and most often grown genera, there are are many more suitable to grow in collections in this country. All Mesembs grow by producing opposing pairs of leaves each year and usually (but not always) grow towards the latter end of our summer season.

Whether you are a keen collector of Mesembs or have no idea what they are you will find the day enjoyable and will see many plants not often found in collections. We hope to see you there.
