An excerpt from Debra Lee Baldwin's Blog on our upcoming Summer Show & Sale.
<<Collectors know where to find rare succulents: at shows hosted by Cactus and Succulent Society affiliate clubs. Attend one near you to see unusual plants grown and displayed perfectly; blue-ribbon winners; reasonably priced plants not found in nurseries; growers and experts; and one-of-a-kind, artist-designed pots. I like to pick out a collectible art pot and carry it with me as I choose a plant for it...and vice-versa.
Larger Cactus and Succulent Society of America affiliates host shows once or twice a year. One of the biggest is the San Diego Cactus & Succulent Society's summer show and sale at Casa Del Prado, Balboa Park, the first weekend in June. Admission is free, but if you want to get in early to shop before the crowds, become a member ($15/year).>>
