The objectives of the Society are to promote the study, conservation, propagation and cultivation of cacti and other succulent plants. Membership of the Society is open to all.

The Society was formed in 1983 by the amalgamation of the two major cactus and succulent societies in the UK, The National Cactus and Succulent Society (NCSS), and The Cactus and Succulent Society of Great Britain (CSSGB), both of which had long histories.

Membership of the BCSS is currently about 3,800 and includes the whole range from novice window-sill growers to experts. The Society has just under 100 branches in the UK which organise an active programme of events every year. Although the majority of our members are in the UK and Ireland we have a large overseas membership with members in more than 60 countries. Anyone is eligable to join. If you would like more information send for a leaflet. You can receive our high quality quarterly magazine by subscribing on-line with your MasterCard/Visa credit card.
