Welcome to the Somerset Branch of the BCSS

We very much regret that, owing to the Coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the decision to cancel our meetings and events for March and April. We are reviewing the situation month-by-month and we will keep you updated as soon as possible.

Meetings are usually held on the third Wednesday of the month at Wellsprings Chapel, Quantock Road, Taunton TA2 7NL. See our contact page for details of how to find us.

Our regular meetings start at 7.30pm with a break for refreshments and discussion.  We have a varied programme lined up for the year with some excellent speakers and, as usual, we will exhibit at the Taunton Flower Show. See our meetings page for full details.

There are often sales plants available, come early to get the best bargains. Identification problems? Bring the plant(s) along to see if anyone can help. You are also invited to bring along any plants of interest as an informal display for the benefit of other members. If these plants are in flower then so much the better.

If you live locally, or are visiting the area why not come and join us at one of our monthly meetings. All visitors are always most welcome.

Taunton Flower Show

The Branch does not hold an Annual Show, but it does mount a large display in the main floral marquee at the Taunton Flower Show each year. In recent years we have been fortunate enough to receive a Gold Award, or even a Large Gold Award. There is also an opportunity for members to sell surplus plants at this event.
