It is not likely that too many members - at least in Europe - will be growing Proteas but of course others have more amenable climates for such plants. Robbie Blackhall-Miles FLS is working in Wales on the study of such plants and hopes to  discover in time that more are able to be grown in the UK than was previously imagined.

Robbie was  in receipt of an SRGC Exploration Grant to help with an expedition to South Africa - you can  read his article in the International Rock Gardener (IRG)  #80 of August 2016 -  HERE  - also contains much more, of course !

From Liz Mills :

2018 Applications for Exploration Awards

Please note that the deadlines for applications in 2018 are 15 March and 15 November.  The Committee Secretary, Carol Shaw, is currently in hospital with poor internet access.  My recent e-mails have been returned as undeliverable so I suspect her Inbox is now full.

Carol’s husband, David, has been forwarding applications to me and I have acknowledged all those that I have received.  If you have not received an acknowledgment from me, please send your application again to: liz.saline@hotmail.co.uk   And if you have not yet sent in your application please send it to this address before 15 March.

Please accept my apologies for any confusion and any problems this has caused you.

There's more help out there than is sometimes imagined.....RHS funding News - via  HortNews ( https://mailchi.mp/actpub/hortnews-your-horticulture-update-nbusszxy47-1223653 )

 RHS funding available to modern day plant hunters

The RHS has made more than £100,000 available to gardening professionals and keen amateurs who want to combine worldwide travel and horticultural learning this year.

The funding, which comprises a series of bursaries and will see around 100 applicants receive amounts ranging between £200 to £3,000, is intended to grow the UK’s horticultural skills and knowledge. This might include – at home or abroad – the study of a particular plant or growing technique, conference attendance or help funding a voluntary work placement.

A fellowship programme also offers one applicant an all-expenses paid opportunity to study at an American University or gain practical experience at Pennsylvania’s botanical Longwood Gardens.

Previous recipients of RHS funding have investigated unique flora in Korea’s Demilitarised Zone, researched plants in the Caucasus Mountains and followed in the footsteps of famed horticulturist Harold Comber in Tasmania.

Chris Moncrieff, Head of Horticultural Relations, said: “Hundreds of people have already benefitted from RHS funding; supporting their professional careers, confirming their passion for gardening and bolstering the UK’s horticultural know how. There’s still much to be explored so we’re encouraging anyone with a passion for plants to apply.”

The next round of funding applications closes on 30th September. More information is available at www.rhs.org.uk/bursaries
