There’s plenty going on in the Cotswolds next month with village gardens open and a display by specialist cacti growers.
Succulents and cacti are enjoying a rise in popularity as houseplants become fashionable again.
There’ll be the chance to see a wide range in Cheltenham when enthusiasts stage their annual cacti and succulents show.
Agave, aloe and euphorbia will be among the wide range on display with classes for individual plants or groups.
The event, held by the Gloucester and district branch of the British Cactus & Succulent Society, is at Shurdington Social Centre, Shurdington, Cheltenham, on June 3, 2017. It runs from 11-4pm and admission is £1.
There will be plants for sale, growing advice and refreshments available. More information on the website
