WESTERN CAPE FUCHSIA SOCIETY
visited my page!
Western Cape Fuchsia Society of South Africa welcomes you
to the first and, as far as I am aware, the only Fuchsia
society website in South Africa, we trust you will enjoy the
site, visit often and that you will offer constructive criticism and useful
tips and suggestions.
The Society's Mission statement is:
|To encourage, improve and extend the cultivation of Fuchsias.|
|To regulate the nomencullture of Fuchsias and to assist in
registering the names and descriptions of new varieties and species.|
|To collect and disseminate information likely to prove of
interest to members.|
|To encourage the study and growing of Fuchsias.|
|To encourage participation in Shows and Exhibitions.|
|To encourage the formation of independent groups with the same
objectives as above.|
The Society meets monthly starting in February on first
Saturday of every month. Workshops are held from March at which
experienced growers lecture and demonstrate all aspects of Fuchsia
growing. Tea is served after the workshop and a talk is given bi-monthly
by well known speakers, some related to Fuchsias but often to other
plants or places of interest. Our annual
subscriptions are R120.00 for which you get a quarterly magazine called
Fuchsia Focus and all the other benefits of our club. People living too
far away from Cape Town to attend our meetings may join for R50.00 pa
and will receive the Fuchsia Focus but will not be able to vote. If you
are in Cape Town on a visit you would be welcome as a visitor.
Venue: St Thomas Church Hall, Campground Rd, Rondebosch
Time: 2:00 pm
An annual show is held towards the end of November every year at the
Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Plants are

Fuchsia Focus is either posted to members or sent by email as requested
4 times a year and a newsletter is published once a month.

COMMENTS and SUGGESTIONS
British Fuchsia Society: While browsing the net recently I
came across an article about the history of the B.F.S. Many of our rules
are in line with the B.F.S. so I found this article extremely
interesting - it is quite long so I will not transpose it here but if
you are interested in history have a look
