Welcome to the Lea Valley Branch
of the BCSS

We are a small, friendly Branch, meeting at Capel Manor College, located near Enfield, and easy to reach from North London, Herts and Essex. See our Arrowcontact page for a map and more details.

The Branch caters for all levels of interest and our members grow cacti and succulents in greenhouses, conservatories, garden frames and on window sills.

We hold regular meetings throughout the year on the second Wednesday of the month in room D7 in the main building at Capel Manor College.  See our Arrowmeetings page for our 2018 programme.

Meetings usually include an illustrated talk on a wide range of subjects and you will always be welcome to join us. There is no need to be a member of the Branch, or even a member of the BCSS to attend a meeting.

We also hold an annual show with extensive plant sales over the May Bank Holiday. See our Arrowannual show page for more details, where the Show Schedule is now available to download.

If you are interested in cacti and succulents we would love to meet you. Do come along to one of our meetings and introduce yourself.
