Last weekend my friend Koos van Dijk the owner of Kwekerij Alpine at Oudehoorn had his yearly alpine plant sale. Here you will see some of his plant that were on display and for sale.

I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did.

Lovely, Ian, Pleione limprichtii is a gem. You can always keep the cloche handy and cover the flowers with a layer or two of fleece and cover the lot with the cloche again on a frosty night though, couldn't you? Definitely worth the extra effort!

I love the thought of Saxifraga oppositifolia hanging in curtains down rock walls. It must be magnificent!

A brief spring report from Norway.
I just came back from a short trip up north and on my way I had to cross some mountain areas. Normally there should be only snow and ice to look at in the end of March, but spring are extremely early even in the mountains this year. It was a wonderful sight with melting water coming down the cliffs and Saxifraga oppositifolia hanging on the vertical stone walls along the road.
Geir

Yes, it must be a great sight... you can see the water on the stone in Geir's photo of the Sax. opp......and what a strong colour it is, and good flowers... yummy!

I don't think you have to be sad to watch flowers open. Today was so sunny and hot, I sat watching erythronium come up and flower. Well I  had a cup of tea between times ;D

We've just been watching the first of the new series of "The Beechgrove Garden" on BBC television, where SRGC President, Ian Christie, wearing his Snowdrop lover's hat, gave Carole Baxter, one of the presenters, a super tour around the massed snowdrops at one of his favourite sites. Ian explained the differences between G. nivalis and plicatus and showed how hybrids can be so varied. He is a natural for television, his friendly manner and knowledge come effortlessly across to the viewer. Carole Baxter is one of the most knowledgeable and relaxed presenters on TV garden shows... and to prove her credentials, she is a long-time member of the SRGC!!

Fun to have this item, filmed a few weeks ago, on just as the  last snowdrops are flowering here... and we found a lone Crocus scardicus out today in the garden... it has been a super warm and sunny day!
