Table Show

We hold a competitive Table Show at our regular meetings which is a light-hearted way of bringing the best plants from members' collections to try to win prizes. Points are awarded for first, second and third places in each category which are added up at the end of the year.

In both the cactus and succulent sections plants can be entered in pots of 3 inches and under, or over 3 inches. 

The tray competition is something else. Using a standard gravel tray you can enter as many plants as you like to fit the heading each month. It is a good chance to bring along plants which may not fit any other group.

In the categories given below Genus A, for example, means any cactus or succulent, as appropriate, whose genus begins with A.
