Toronto Cactus & Succulent Plant Show & Sale, 2014

The Toronto Cactus & Succulent Club’s Annual Plant Show & Sale was held at Allan Gardens Conservatory on June 1, 2014. There were more than 90 classes for cacti and other succulents including Euphorbias, Agaves, Haworthias, and some caudiciforms on display. The plants were not great in number but they were all healthy and well-kept plants that represented major species of cacti and other succulents.

The sale counters attracted both novice and seasoned collectors. For those who missed the show, here are a few pictures from the event.

There were a few nice specimens of Mammillaria, Gymnocalycium and Notocactus.
