Issue 131 now out packed with articles, plant descriptions,  a biography of Scottish plant hunter Thomas Baillie MacDougall, book reviews and web links plus details of the seed exchange and the index of issues 121-130.

There's an important article about Hylotelephium ussuriense by the late Lawrie Springate and Julian Shaw (both, I think, from Edinburgh RBGE).

Also to draw to your attention the book review of Crassulaceae of the Russian Far East by Svetlana Gontcharova and the website http://botsad.ru/menu/mir-rastenii/atlas-crassul/

Issue 132 out now with articles, seed exchange and information on the cuttings exchange.

Worth drawing to your attention an article by Ray Stephenson on the distribution of Crassulaceae in Kefalonia, a discussion on Echeveria hybrids, and part 1 of a plant exploration of Catalonia.

There's also a very useful review of the Secrets of Namaqualand Succulents by Florent Grenier, Media Graphic https://namaqualand-succulents.com/

There's also a note that all Newsletters 1-130 are now available on a single searchable file supplied on memory stick for 40, E45 or $50 - that's a real bargain.

Also to note that the searchable index of all issues (by yours truly) is freely available at the International Crassulaceae Network ( http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/home) at http://www.crassulaceae.ch/uploads/files/pdf/Index%201-131%20Sedum%20Society%20Index.pdf
