The Dublin and District Cactus and
Succulent Society

a Branch of the British Cactus & Society zone 17.


The aim of the members is to grow and flower Cactus & Succulent plants successfully but it is difficult to find plants and

information on them in Ireland, but this site might help.

Many people have a succulent or cactus on a windowsill or perhaps a few in a porch so this Society was formed in 1992 to

enable those with an interest in these plants to meet and discuss. The Society now has on average twentyeight members who

hail from every corner of the country; some with no more than six plants to those members who have two full glasshouses.
