 It is a delight this month to publish the description of a plant named by Fritz Kummert in tribute to the legendary German plantsman Wilhelm Schacht. The commemoration of such people in this way is something that can carry their name to a new generation.
As winter envelops us in the northern hemisphere we look back to sunnier days in Sicily, as Gerrit Eijkelenboom writes about the flowers he and his wife Iep, encountered there in May. Their focus is again mostly on the range of orchids to be seen.

Many thanks to all readers and contributors- and especially to  Glassford Sprunt and Richard Green for their work in indexing and proof-reading the IRG.

December sunset over Balgavies Loch, Angus, by Fred Carrie. (This is the same as our calendar cover)



In previous years the IRG has provided a calendar for readers to print out and use for the year – we are again pleased to be able to do so with a link in this month's issue.
This link will take you direct to a copy of the IRG 2017 calendar of plant and nature photographs which were all taken by the Scottish Rock Garden Club’s Webmaster, Fred Carrie. We rely on him for solutions to all technical matters for the Club. Fred used to run the former Tough Alpine Nursery in Aberdeenshire and has served the Club in many ways, such as a former picture editor for the printed journal, The Rock Garden, as well as his busy schedule as webmaster.

 Remember, if you feel you have an article that would make good copy for this magazine, please do get in touch – email the Editor- we are always glad to hear from you with your articles or ideas.

A new year begins. :)

 

Direct link to IRG January 2017 
: HERE

 Your IRG Team hopes to bring you an interesting mixture of subjects over the year to enthuse and perhaps educate you in the ways of the plants which form the basis of our growing interest. In this issue, a number of Saxifraga hybrids recently registered with Adrian Young the registrar of the Saxifraga Society, are formally introduced from the breeder David Walkey who sadly died earlier this month. Adrian also provides a short introduction to David Walkey’s  hybrids.
 
 In conjunction with the printed journal of the SRGC, The Rock Garden, we are delighted to feature another contribution from Matt Topsfield to supplement his  article in TRG 138 of January  2017 with a photo essay of narcissus found on his  trip in the footsteps of John Blanchard, who will, we hope, be pleased to see how his  previous travels still inspire plantsmen today.
 
 (Matt’s article on some of the plants other than narcissus which he saw during his trip were published in the IRG 81 (International Rock Gardener e-magazine)  HERE  )

All issues of IRG can be found  on the main IRG page HERE

IRG 87 - March 2017



Spain retains its attraction to draw visitors keen to enjoy a break and see wildflowers at the same time. Răzvan Chişu, a Romanian who now lives and works in Cheshire recalls an early spring trip to Alpujarras. Răzvan recently took over as Editor for the Saxifraga Society and is been much involved in Plant Heritage projects and Hardy Plant Society displays.

The charming garden of Hana Zíková in Bohemia is introduced by Zdenek Zvolanek with photos by Zdena Kosourová. We do hear more from the male of the species but there are also talented female Czech gardeners; !

Ian Christie, himself a former SRGC president, describes a new Galanthus cultivar, named for a sadly missed SRGC former President, Harley Milne who died last year. 

Download the issue here : http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2017Mar301490900939IRG87March2017.pdf

 As ever, thanks are due to Glassford Sprunt for his updated Index to all issues of the IRG  International Rock Gardener ISSN 2053-7557    - click  HERE

The weather is "topsy-turvey" - it seems  the plants don't know whether to come or go - and who could blame them? Here in N.E. Scotland summer tried to arrive today while the ground looked as if there had been a sn owfall - the blossom is falling from the Sorbus!

For the May IRG we escape to Rhodes to see orchids and other flowers there, from Gerrit and Iep Eikelenboom and, from Iran, we discover a new Crocus species  from Iran, described by Jānis Rukšāns.

In case readers are on holiday and crave something to read; are rained out of the garden or  seeking a shady respite from the heat - this month's IRG is published early!

This issue has  descriptions of new Crocus species from Dimitri Zubov and Janis Ruksans - including in honour of Janis and Marcus Harvey- and news of artist in residence activity at the wonderful Inverewe Gardens on the west coast of Scotland - plus a poem by Lydia Muijen inspired by the garden and the recent  erythronium festival there.

From Janis - a note of an error in IRG 90 - page 27.

Sorry, but on p. 27- of IRG 90 is mistake. In picture caption instead of Crocus seisumsiana ex Samos – KJGR collections 080, 080-1, 073, 076 Photos Jānis Rukšāns
is written - Crocus seisumsiana ex Chios...

KJGR trip was mostly dedicated to Chios Island, searching for variability of Crocus pallasii, as I supposed that it could be different species (for the cv. 'Homeri'). But variability turned very great. Each population had plants looking close to traditional C. pallasii and plants with deep purple throat as in Cv. 'Homeri'.
There was no spring blooming "annulate" crocus found. Last 2 days we passed on Samos, where was collected samples KJGR-073, 076, 080, 080-1, used for pictures of new species.

Apologies for this mistake, Janis - I will add a correction to the next issue.
