Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed :laugh2:
For someone in the UK (and not the London bit) I was wondering if its worth joining the CPS or better joining the ICPS. Or even neither or both?
The CPS doesn't seem to list much on their website and while the ICPS is obviously the International society it doesn't seem to offer much scope for inter-personal communication outside of the AGMs every two years. I'm a member of another society for an 'obscure' hobby and find their meetings and bi-month magazine to be well worth it. I've attended meetings in both London and Birmingham and its always nice to have that option of actually talking to real people and learning new things. From what I've seen I'm not sure if this is something the CPS provides, but perhaps I'm wrong on that.
Also having someone to tell about my new Cephalotus would stop my other half moaning at me ;-)

There are only three months to go to the ICPS 2016 conference and there is not a lot going on.
I would have thought that the forum would be buzzing by now but all is very quiet.

It's their open days this weekend. I'll be down in Hampshire anyway, so will probably pop in but not certain when ATM. Anybody else thinking of turning up?

Some will already know, but my open day will be on Saturday, 11th of June at 12 noon.
As usual, you will be be welcome to sell, swap and trade and also there will be light refreshments.
As last time, please let me know if you are coming and we will get the food in etc. There will be many plants here on offer and I have a few bags of the pine bark, perlite and a couple of bales of peat needing homes to save me moving them!
This could be the last open day at our current address so it is unclear whether the autumn open day in October is going to be here or at the new place!
The highlights this year will be 1st and 2nd year trial plants in the peat free mix and one can notice the difference already.
Furthermore, the collection is more diverse year on year as I have been actively collecting myself!
I hope to see many of you here!
