ABOUT THE SOCIETY

 

The Society was formed in September 1999 especially for Streptocarpus (Cape Primrose) growers with small, medium or large collections.  We welcome new members with a wide range of growing knowledge and experience. Members range from beginners with a few plants on their windowsills to expert growers with many years of experience. We are happy to help new members to increase their expertise and enjoyment of streptocarpus growing.

 

Founders:  Frank Davies, Ken Jones

President:  Lynne Dibley

BSS SHOW

 

The Society holds an Annual Show which is an opportunity for growers to meet each other and discuss topics of general interest.

 

In 2020 there was a Virtual BSS Show which can be viewed in the BSS SHOW 2020 and on the VIDEOS page.

Due to the ongoing uncertainty caused by COVID-19, the 2021 BSS Show will again be a virtual one with all entries photographic. Full details can be found in the June 2021 BSS newsletter received by all members.
