From the Inter-City Show Committee:

“The 30th Annual Inter-City Cactus and Succulent Show is this weekend, Saturday, Aug 8th and Sunday, August 9th.
This is one of the stellar events in the Cactus and Succulent World, with a worldwide reputation for the quality and quantity of entries.
The show is so well known that people are coming from as far away as India and Korea to see the show, visit the Arboretum and attend the sale.
The Inter-City Show pioneered the concept of Walks and Talks, adding an important educational component to the show. There will be great talks on both days.”

“The Inter-City Show has a well-deserved reputation for the place to see one-of-a-kind plants;
but more importantly, it has the reputation as the place where plants are grown to standards of excellence that are impossible to exceed.”

I’ve attended this show the past several years, and it never disappoints.

Having the show and sale at the Arboretum makes it a not-to-be-missed event.

And talk about perfect timing, Rolling Greens just received a shipment of containers, including these square, lightweight concrete fabrications that are so hard to find.

  1. I wish there were a place around here that carried these square containers. I’ve been looking…

    Looking forward to your coverage of the Inter-City Show!

    I’ve often thought of entering simply so I could go to the early sale. Maybe next year. This year will have non-heatwave weather for a change. Yee-haw!

  3. If it’s anything like the Sacramento show, the people who volunteer get to have first dibs because they’re there as the vendors arrive and set up.
