SRGC on Instagram! 

Kirsty Wilson is now curating an Instagram account for the club which can be shared world wide and will hopefully engage with a younger audience. Instagram is an easy way to share images and short content. It will also have a link to the website. If you could please all share on all social media platforms and send Kirsty any images and content to share. To get Instagram just simply download the app to your phone or view on a web page. Our username is srg_club, so you can follow us at https://www.instagram.com/srg_club

From Scott Cook who is at Göteborgs botaniska trädgård in Gothenburg, Sweden     .......

"I have been very quiet on FB recently as I have been busy with other things not least of which is taking over the @srg_club Instagram. Worth a look (even if I do say so myself!) as I don't duplicate posts between the two.
Right now I am lucky enough to be spending a couple of weeks working with Johan Nilson and the rest of the team in the Alpine Department at Gothenburg Botanic Gardens. Everyone here has been so welcoming, friendly and happy share their knowledge and experience and they have such a range of stunning plants some of which I'll share here for you all to admire.
How about some stunning Irises to start ... "

Iris rosenbachiana  ( thinks maggi )

(not sure what this is - very pretty though!) perhaps a form of  Iris kuschakewiczii  ( looks right  :) - see ebbie's  photo here : http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=12629.msg328489#msg328489 )

"Three Fritillaria species bells to gaze into from the extensive collection here.
Just as we move plants into our display house when they are at their peak back in @rbgedinburgh here some are moved into the exhibition hall for the public to see where they are very obviously appreciated. Here are Fritillaria chlorantha, F. karelinii and F. zagrica....."
