ABOUT THE SOCIETY
The Society was formed in September 1999 especially for Streptocarpus (Cape Primrose) growers with small, medium or large collections. The current membership is just over 550. 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.

In 2019 Frank Davies received the Maurice Mason Award from the RHS Tender Ornamental Plant Committee to recognise and reward his significant personal achievement relating to plants. They felt that Frank's passion and dedication to promoting streptocarpus over so many years makes him the very deserving first recipient of this new award.

Important Membership Notice
As you will all no doubt be aware coronavirus has impacted everything about our everyday lives. Despite their best efforts to maintain “business as usual” it has been apparent that the postal system in many areas has become sporadic. We can only thank the postal services for keeping a service going.
In light of this, and after a lot of thought, the Society has decided to review our membership status for the next 2 years.
We have decided to make membership FREE to all existing members for 2020.
Those of you who have already renewed and paid for this year will receive FREE Membership for 2020 and automatically be paid up for 2021.
Anyone who has not already renewed please just write or email Pauline Benton (do not send any payment) just so we know that you wish to continue your membership. This will make your next renewal due on March 31st 2021.
Any new members who have joined this year will get 2 years for the price of one, i.e. 2020 for FREE and 2021 for your first subscription.
Many thanks for your understanding – Ian Davis (Chairman)
