Events & Monthly Meetings

Henry Shaw Cactus and Succulent Society normally holds monthly meetings on Sundays throughout the year at Missouri Botanical Garden facilities in St. Louis. A club picnic is scheduled in September, while the December meeting is a holiday party.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, HSCSS meetings and most other activities were held online via Zoom in 2021. In-person meetings will resume in 2022.

Next Meeting – December 12, 2021

PhotoProgram: Winter Holiday Gala

This in-person December party will be a fun time to see friends and bid on plants as well as non-plant-related items. There will also be a raffle, attendance prizes and a game or two. Join your cactus buddies – live! from 1 to 4 p.m. – at The Heights in Richmond Heights. (COVID restrictions apply.)

Learn, Share … Win!

Meetings typically feature guest speakers or other varied programs of interest to succulent hobbyists. Hands-on workshops may focus on pruning, potting or dividing plants. Members are encouraged to bring in plants to show off and share their cultivation secrets. Books from the club’s library can be requested for pick up – and don’t forget the attendance prizes!

Henry Shaw Cactus and Succulent Society’s main event is its Annual Show and Sale, held each summer at Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis. At this multiday fund-raising event, member exhibitors bring their best specimens for judging and display in over 150 categories. Popular vendors supply thousands of starter and specimen plants for sale, too.
