Interesting to note that in the new volume of The Rock Garden Cyril Lafong, one of the finest growers in the Club, has written an extremely good article 'Growing in an Alpine House in which he indicates that after trying various kinds of shading he now relies on 'Coolglass'

As a note to that, I'd add that Cyril gardens in Glenrothes, in the east of central Scotland ....Zone 8? Does he mention this in the article?
Margaret Young in Aberdeen, North East Scotland Zone 7 -ish!

Not yet Arthur, just a very few flakes on the wind but just noticed that our barometer is dropping like a stone so may get a bit this evening.

New journal arrived this morning and brightened up the day. In my opinion the pictures and articles are
simply gorgeous! Many thanks to the authors and editors.

Fortunately, it shines on the rest of us too - when it's not snowing. :D

No post today - surprising as our postman delivers wearing shorts for most of the winter.

Hope my copy comes tomorrow - I want to book places on the Discussion Weekend

Well, in Aberdeen we never USE greenhouse shading.
Alex is in Oxford, so he might well find I it useful... you're nearer Alex, Tony..... what is the suggestion YOU are going to hang on the peg? ::)?

My alpine house is currently using natural external shading :D
