IRG 58 of October 2014  is now online HERE : http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2014Oct301414703577IRG58.pdf     

We have a new contributor this month - Robbie Blackhall-Miles, who  is propagator at Crug Farm Plants in North Wales and blogs for ‘Guardian Gardening’ where he encourages people to try growing something new and different. On his website www.fossilplants.co.uk he writes about the plants growing in his ‘backyard botanic garden’ ; a collection of early evolutionary plants and horticultural oddities. He is becoming renowned for succeeding with difficult to grow plant species and is particularly interested in Proteaceae, Ericaceae, Cycads and Ferns. He is a fellow of ‘The Linnean Society Of London’ – the world’s premier society for the study of natural history, and is Chairman of the Australasian Plant Society in Great Britain.


IRG 58  has  an  article from Robbie Blackhall-Miles on the living roof  of his shed. He has included some rather surprising plants there. Who would expect to see Ranunculus lyallii ,  looking so much at home in its native New Zealand in this photo by David Lyttle, to be able to survive on  the roof of a wooden shed in Wales? 


Ranunculus lyallii in the Hooker Valley  by David Lyttle.

Zdeněk Zvolánek  (ZZ)  writes, with input from Robert Rolfe  and  John Mitchell of the lovely Gentiana ternifolia ' Cangshan' .  The introduction of this gentian is discussed in the June 1989 issue of  The Rock Garden  in  an article: "Two new autumn flowering gentians - possibly ascribed to Gentiana ternifolia" by I. Christie and I.H. McNaughton - the full Journal including the article is available online :  http://files.srgc.net/journals/vol_1%20to_113/84.pdf
 (You may not know that 127137 (number updated!)  issues of the SRGC journal "The Rock Garden" are available to read or download from this page : http://www.bgci.org/garden.php?id=5021&ftrCountry=GB&ftrKeyword=&ftrBGCImem=Y&ftrIAReg=    8) )


Zdeněk Zvolánek also sings the praises of a Daphne arbuscula cultivar, 'Star of Ziskov'

New Issue : IRG 62 of February 2015 online now !
 
http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2015Feb261424987169IRG62.pdf


'GRÜNER FAUN'

At this time of year in the northern hemisphere our thoughts are buoyed by the increasing evidence of spring flowers and many of these are “bulbs” in the widest sense.
The passion and fashion for Galanthus continues unabated so we thought a report from landscape architect and galanthophile Hagen Engelmann from Cottbus, on some of his favourite snowdrops, which are not “just white” was appropriate.

Christophe Ruby from the Hof Botanical Garden makes a plea in his article for more enthusiasm for a plant he considers to be too often overlooked for use in our gardens.
Finally, Wim Boens, the Belgian plantsman so active for the VRV provides an update to his previous article on the Genus Eranthis. Yes, this is an issue of IRG heavy with “bulbs” – if you feel this to be an overload then we invite you to submit a piece on a plant that interests you!
