Hello from UK North West and London

Post by Hero878 »

Hi all
I just signed up a few days ago. I am based in London and near Liverpool in the north west. Ever since lockdown in March 2020 I have collected so many cacti and succulents like over 35 and counting and I can't see it stopping :D

Anyway looking forward to making many more posts here and contributing to the community

Hello and Welcome aboard from across the pond! Happy New Year!

I speak for myself...but I feel many will agree that some photos of your cactus collection would be welcome.

Best,

Steve

Welcome from Nottingham UK also still in lockdown. As we can't hold British Cactus & Succulent Society branch meetings here we are all corresponding by email, which I suppose is a mini form of this forum.

You and anybody else may be interested in the BCSS ZOOM talks which you do not have to be a member to view. However these are not recorded so you can only view them live at the times stated. For those outside the UK you will have to convert Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to your own time zone.

You only need to click on that talks link a few minutes before the start time and if you do not have ZOOM on the computer it will tell you to load it then follow the instructions to enter the talk. They usually just chat for a few minutes to allow late comers to join before the talk starts.

Hello from Manchester, UK. Welcome.

I seem to remember you can just use Zoom in your browser for those talks, you don't have to download it. I haven't tried to yet but that next talk is unmissable for me.
