Essex Succulent Review

The Essex Succulent Review is a quarterly publication available to download in pdf format.

This month our cover picture is Echinocereus boyce-thompsonii showing off its magnificent flowers in Kathy and Keith Flanagan's cold frame.  See 'Cold frames are good for cacti' in this issue.

We also have another new feature on the website this month. From time to time I receive an article with more pictures than I can use in the Essex Succulent Review itself. So we are introducing a Gallery feature to display additional pictures. The first of these is some more pictures of Kathy and Keith's superb plants, grown in their cold frames. It was difficult to choose which pictures to use in the ESR and which to display here, so do go to the first of our galleries and look at these great pictures.
