Hope you can join us at the CSSA May Gathering! For those unable to attend the hall we will still be Live Streaming to the CSSA Members-Only Group and Zooming (details on how to join can be found below).
Our Speaker this month is Martin Ganter - Relocating bottle trees
Martin has been a member since 2005, served on CSSA Committee and as Editor from 2007 to 2009. He has a wide range of cacti and succulents, with a large majority of his collection growing in the garden. These days when he is not working, Martin spends time in his workshop making sawdust and other interesting and beautiful creations (Wild Heart Woodcraft - https://www.facebook.com/Wildheartwoodcraft). Martin has plans to also relocate a glasshouse in the future to make room for a workshop extension.
Martin will talk about the process of relocating and establishing of two mature Bottle Trees in January 2020 in Melbourne.
POTM: 'Intergeneric' succulent or cacti
