CYCLAMEN DAY
 
Melvyn Jope and Martyn Denney Chairman and Secretary of the Cyclamen Society will share the lectures with presentations on Cyclamen in Greece in Turkey and in Cultivation.
 
Lectures at 11.00 am and 2.00pm
 
They will talk about the Cyclamen Society, probably the most active and successful society devoted to one Genus that there is and the Societyís expeditions to see and record plant populations in the wild. This promises to be a fascinating insight into the genus cyclamen and its  species with something for all SRGC members.
 
Members are invited to contribute to the day by bringing as many pans of dwarf bulbs and early flowering alpine plants as possible.  Every contribution increases the value of the display for others. Please bring as many pans of bulbs and alpines as possible. Plants will be grouped into `classes' on the morning between 9 am and 10 am.  The usual rule of one pan per class per exhibitor will be waived.  No prize money or points will be awarded.  Space will be available for cut flowers of plants which members do not want to disturb in the garden.  Please bring your own vases for cut flowers.  Members may also stage small exhibits of several pans to show variation in species etc. Contributions are invited to the 50:50 plant sale, which will be held to cover expenses.
Members are asked to help with the teas and plant stall as this day is organised by the Bulb Group rather than a local group, and the Bulb Groupís activities benefit all members.
