(3 of 8)
Highlands & Islands Branch activity currently takes the form of a series of meetings, Shows and Conventions where you can hear interesting talks by experts.

You can see a wide variety of plants in the 'Plant of the Month' and see, and hear, how to grow them.

Branch meetings are also an excellent way of acquiring good plants which members bring in to make room in their collections for new stock. In summer there are visits to members' greenhouses and nurseries, both locally and as far away as Oban and Aberdeen.

The Cactus House at Floral Hall is looked after by Branch members and anyone who would like to be involved would be very welcome.

One of the main attractions of doing so is that one is actively involved on a larger scale than is possible in one's own greenhouse; for example, working on a 20 foot Euphorbia with a 4 inch trunk! There is also the social aspect of working with others.

Meeting Times
   Saturday : 1245 to 1530 Monthly

Note
   Usually last Saturday of the month
