New Zealand Alpines
« on: January 09, 2008, 07:14:09 PM »
Those particularly interested in alpines from New Zealand will find Ross Graham's Site of interest. He is based down the road from Lesley in Dunedin. His Site includes:- Aciphylla,Celmisia,Haastia,Chionohbe,Ranunculus and has cultivation advice as well. You might like to browse it Dave whilst you recover from your crook back?

The back flared up yesterday,( but okay now), after *lifting /shifting ,(against my strong advice),7 large Rhodos for a client the day before.
*I have some concern on whether they will survive the upheaval as it's mid summer here and they have been placed in an exposed position.

Ross has a wonderful site and an extensive NZ native seed list including the impressive Subantarctic megaherb Stilbocarpa polaris.

Cheers Dave.
