What's the difference between an ISSN and an ISBN?
Broadly :

The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) identifies a single, nonrecurring publication (book, DVD etc).

The International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) identifies a serial, recurring publication, such as a monthly journal or a publication that may be updated.


ISBN are used for books. ISSN are used for newspapers, magazines and such. The ISSN identifies the serial as a whole, each issue has the same ISSN as  all other issues, be they  weekly, monthly, quarterly, whatever.

"Erythroniums in cultivation-  a great turn out for Ian Young's  stunning opening talk of Erythronium festival at Inverewe Gardens (NTS)  on the west coast of Scotland"

Part of  Scottish Gardens promotions too

Ian says the gardens are looking terrific - and the weather is cool but lovely and sunny.

Ian, surely you pinched a bit of white Erythronium revolutum pollen from Inverewe to bring back with you for your white revolutum?  Maybe some white pollen from the one with the most clumping tendency?  I would have found it irresistible to get a bit of pollen.

No Jan I did not bring back any pollen but I am hopeful of receiving some seed from the whites.

It has been a good Erythronium year Fermi, I am looking forward to meeting up with you and many others in a few days time.....

I like your pictures of Cochlearia danica, Ian.  It's lovely to see on dual carriageways at this time of year.  I would love to get hold of seed of the deep pink or purple forms.  There are a couple of places between Aberdeen and Kintore where it would be possible to park the car and collect a few plants but they are on the central reservation and I cannot bring myself to dash across the road, trowel in hand to acquire some.   I noticed when in Sweden a few years ago the salt tolerant roadside 'weed' was another seaside plant Armeria maritima.  Much showier than the Cochlearia.

Roma, I Have also been keen to colect the pink form but I  share your caution over venturing into the middle of a busy road however I found a small colony on the coast near Stonehaven and will return when I come back from the Czech Conference to collect some seed.

Ian is enjoying himself in Pruhonice- but left the Bulb Log with me to load - this week he's thinking about ground cover as well as flowers....
