Thank you Maggi for Holubeck seed list. I couldn't resist, and made a small order. :)

My order arrived yesterday, mostly Galanthus and Meconopsis seeds, and there were several bonus seeds: all Galanthus seeds and I couldn't be more happy about my order from Holubeck. :)

After a stunning run down the Tweed on Wednesday, with spectacular views to the snow capped Lammermuirs and Cheviots, we arrived in Bowden to find the surrounding area still shrouded in freezing fog. Despite this, 30 stalwart members were treated to a superb talk by Aaron Marshall, describing the various horticultural projects in which he had been involved before and during his present employment at the RBGE. Stan had brought plants to admire, Jim’s were for sale, nearly everyone won a raffle prize and there was home baking for all. Thanks to everyone for attending and contributing to another enjoyable meeting of the Scottish Borders Rock Garden Group.

Events / New Year Plant Hunting in Britain and Ireland
« Last post by FrazerHenderson on December 08, 2023, 08:02:46 PM »
To all Rock Gardeners will you be in Britain or Ireland at the New Year? If so, then here's a way to embrace winter's beauty, learn more about our wonderful wildflowers and make a difference to our knowledge and understanding of climate change.

The New Year Plant Hunt is a remarkable citizen science venture that unveils winter's floral secrets and sheds light on climate change. And it's also great fun.

Warmer winters may be changing the flowering times of plants but help is needed to track this phenomenon.  Perhaps surprisingly, many plants are still flowering in midwinter. Many of these are widespread, common and easy to identify, and armed with a handy spotter sheet to help identification everyone, including total beginners, can recognise at least the top 20 species recorded in previous years.

Interested? It’s easy to take part. During the four days around New Year, 30th December - 2nd January, take a leisurely walk outdoors, noting wild flowers in bloom. Then submit your finds via an online form and contribute to vital climate research.

You can register now at bsbi.org/new-year-plant-hunt

Start 2024 by joining the journey to uncover nature's response to our changing world.
