RHS Joint Rock Committee on Twitter
« on: February 25, 2019, 01:01:37 PM »
 RHS Joint Rock Committee has  opened a Twitter page.

This is a Joint Committee of the RHS, AGS and SRGC concerned with Alpines, Rock Garden Plants and Dwarf Bulbs.  RHS Awards  are given and sometimes Trials are organised for these plants.

(See also this thread The  Mysterious Joint Rock Committee
 http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=12924.0  )

I will post photos  from the new Twitter page  here.

Referring to the  dionysia shown in reply  11 -  Dionysia aretioides x teucriodes , shown by  David  Charlton, will be  given the  cultivar  name ' Evie  Jane  Nicholls' after the  beloved  grandaughter  of  the  Rraiser  of the  plant, Pat  Nicholls.  The  plant  was  given an award by the  RHS Joint  Rock Garden Committee and  so needs  a name - so lovely  to see  it  remembering  one  of  Pat's two tragically  deceased baby grand-daughters.
