CYCLAMEN DAY
 
Melvyn Jope and Martyn Denney Chairman and Secretary of the Cyclamen Society will share the lectures with presentations on Cyclamen in Greece in Turkey and in Cultivation.
 
Lectures at 11.00 am and 2.00pm
 
They will talk about the Cyclamen Society, probably the most active and successful society devoted to one Genus that there is and the Society’s expeditions to see and record plant populations in the wild. This promises to be a fascinating insight into the genus cyclamen and its  species with something for all SRGC members.
 
Members are invited to contribute to the day by bringing as many pans of dwarf bulbs and early flowering alpine plants as possible.  Every contribution increases the value of the display for others. Please bring as many pans of bulbs and alpines as possible. Plants will be grouped into `classes' on the morning between 9 am and 10 am.  The usual rule of one pan per class per exhibitor will be waived.  No prize money or points will be awarded.  Space will be available for cut flowers of plants which members do not want to disturb in the garden.  Please bring your own vases for cut flowers.  Members may also stage small exhibits of several pans to show variation in species etc. Contributions are invited to the 50:50 plant sale, which will be held to cover expenses.
Members are asked to help with the teas and plant stall as this day is organised by the Bulb Group rather than a local group, and the Bulb Group’s activities benefit all members.

Another NEW SRGC EVENT!

SRGC SUMMER MEETING
Flowers of the Hills and Mountains
18th August 10.00am to 4.00pm
Venue Dunblane Christian Fellowship Hall, Station Road, Dunblane

Show Secretary Sandy Leven, 2, Leighton Court, Dunblane FK15 0ED
Tel 01786 824064 sandy.leven@btinternet.com

Event location : Opposite the Railway Station
Staging 8.30am till 10.00 am on Saturday 18th August

A Summer Event to Celebrate Rock Gardening
This new event celebrates the fact that the SRGC is a garden club and the plants which members grow.
It will illustrate and the beauty, diversity and garden worthiness of the widest range of rock and
woodland garden plants, bulbs, shrubs and trees, to encourage their cultivation in gardens and to
encourage the exchange of plants and knowledge among gardeners. The display is not intended to be
floral art.
‘Flowers of the Hills and Mountains’
The event is in FOUR PARTS

Four short talks on 'My Garden'. [c 30 min]

Barry & Cathy Caudwell ‘Creating a garden by the Tay Estuary’ in Abernyte, Perth
Bette Ivey ‘Transforming my Garden’ in Cupar, Fife
John Owen, Askival - Trials Tribulations and Joys in Fort Augustus, Inverness-shire
Ian Bainbridge on creating a ‘Crevice Garden’ at Easter Howgate, near Edinburgh

In these short talks these enthusiasts describe the development of their beautiful gardens and some of the plants that they grow and propagate.

A display of rock garden plants, flowers, foliage and fruit featuring:
 rock plants in pots,
 bulbs,
 cut stems of flowers,
 cut stems of shrubs,
 cut stems of trees
We want a much wider range of exhibits than the usual shows allow for, celebrating plants in
flower, using cut stems, as well as plants in pots. We want members to show plants suitable for
most gardens, as well as any special plants or plants for special situations.

Seedling and plant exchange
 Members can donate pots of seedlings of which they have enough transplants for their own
needs to share with other members
 Pots to be labelled- variety, sowing date, source and number eg SRGC 2011 No. 1234

Plant Sales
 50:50 PLANT SALE A members’ summer plant sale featuring many of the plants in the
displays and any other plants. All plant sales on a ‘50:50 basis’.

After it was mentioned ( thanks, Maureen) that the notes in the show booklet give  directions only from the south of Kincardine... Show Secretary Sam  Sutherland has sent this:

 ....."here are some more directions that might help....
