Al, I doubt I would recognise a phylogenetic analysis if it fell on my plate of cake!   ::)

Happy to post your photos though, to keep members up to date.  ;)

My best wishes, by the way, for all your PHD work!  8)

I really wish we weren't at the opposite end of the country! I would be visiting EBG at every opportunity otherwise - beautiful display. I think Maggi is already running IT for many of us - can there be a better plant related Forum anywhere? I get more out of it every day.

There is tremendous interest in Himalayan plants - so I would have thought that your idea would be very well received, Al.
Plenty room for a thread for you in the forum !  8)

Anyone who saw Great British Garden Rival these are the Iris reticulata Carol Klein potted up in the program doing well.
