IRG - March 2012
« on: March 31, 2012, 08:41:57 AM »
Great issue once again - Cluny is a must to see those primulas flowering from the relative deserts of south-east England; I can hardly believe my eyes that they can grow in such profusion! Very interested by the annual gentians - my first encounter with these was the exquisite little G. nivalis in Iceland. I grow G. syringea from Aberconwy but this in fact looks more like the haynaldii that is pictured. Thanks once again for a most inspiring issue
