Marcus Harvey's latest catalogue is out ( it's not only bulbs, by the way ) .... he ships internationally, Folks!! Contact him for phyto costs etc.

Enjoy the catalogue, if only for the illustrations by his clever partner Suzie. :)
(That's not all you will enjoy, I'm sure!)

This year the catalogue is of a size to be posted here !

Hillview's website is  http://www.hillviewrareplants.com .... Marcus tells me there may be a few minor errors to fix on there still  but I'd visit anyway ;)

Here's an example of Suzies work...

Marcus Harvey's latest  catalogue is now available but not yet on his website as far as I can see.
If you'd like a copy of the pdf version please send me a PM with your e-mail address and I'll send it as soon as I can.
cheers

Susan's work is beautiful all right and she is too modest about it. It's up there with the best.

Really exquisite paintings - they bring out something that is impossible with a camera. I must admit I always liked the paintings used on the cover of the NARGS Bulletin; they were very varied but charming.
