Cold Frame Cacti


One of the best ways to grow the majority of cacti and many other succulents is not with a greenhouse or artificial lighting, but with a simple cold frame.  Chris’ presentation will focus on how one can grow incredible flowering cacti in simple inexpensive structures without heat or with minimal supplemental heat.  In addition, he will let you in on some of my best growing secrets and lessons learned from many years’ experience in growing cacti and other succulents.

Above is the tentative schedule of meeting dates, locations, and educational programs for this year.  Any of this information could change at any time so please check here for the most up to date, accurate meeting information as the year progresses.

Regular monthly meetings take place at the Norfolk Public Library, Norfolk, Massachusetts, on the third Saturday of the month from 1-4 PM, unless otherwise noted or postponed due to bad weather. 

The highlight of each month's meeting is the educational program.  Topics range from detailed lectures about a specific type of succulent plants, to cultivation techniques, to travelogues from succulent plant habitats, to hands on workshops.  We learn from  experts in their fields as well as  fellow CSSM members.  A detailed meeting description is published one month in advance, in the CSSM newsletter.

The May meeting is also our annual meeting when next year's officers are elected.  
It is a very important event that we highly encourage all members to attend.  Hope you will be there!
