MARCH MEETING

The CSSM March meeting will be on Saturday, March 17, 2012 1-4 PM at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston, MA. The program will be, "Succulent Plants of Southern CA" presented by Matt Opel Ph. D. Horticulturist at the University of Connecticut Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology.

Matt has recently had a species of Tylecodon he discovered in South Africa when he was a graduate student named after him - T. opelii. He is very knowledgable about succulents and is an interesting speaker.
This will be an excellent program!

As always we will have a plant auction & raffles as well as a plant show and the ever popular luncheon will be served. Come and meet others who share your love of succulents or come to learn more about these very interesting, unusual and sometimes odd plants.

CSSM will be entered in the Boston Flower and Garden Show at the Seaport World Trade Center. We will be in the Display Windows competition. The show runs from Wednesday, March 14 - Sunday, March 18.
Look for us if you attend the show to see some of our special plants.
