IRG 77 - May 2016

Canadian David Sellars takes us to Italy SPAIN (can you tell geography is not my strong point?! :-[ It's the Giro d'Italia at the moment- I'm distracted!) ), we visit a fine nursery with  a new rock garden in Czechia and learn of a very young horticulturist, Molly Hall from England with an interest in heathers.

It's a bit of a whizz around the world!

For many SRGC members our interest is as much in “wildflowers” of the mountains and moorlands as in “true alpines” so this month’s IRG article by Ian McDonald is apt.
It is too long since we had an update from Zdeněk Zvolánek about the Beauty Slope – as he calls his steep garden in Karlík – this month we discover what is happening there and in some other Czech gardens.
The cover image is of the Scottish endemic, Primula scotica.

Goodness me, another month has gone by - where does the time go?
IRG 79 for July 2016 is here:
 
http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2016Jul281469713982IRG79July.pdf

For July IRG 79 ; a little trip to the Netherlands as we learn from two Dutch growers about their approach to garden design and some clever planting solutions. They show how it is possible to accommodate rock garden and alpine plants in novel ways in a garden that can still be family friendly. Gert Hoek from Dronten in Flevoland has moved upwards in his pursuit of more space for his propagation projects and plants in pots while Jan Tholhuijsen, from Roosendaal in North Brabant uses some bright ideas for reusing odd items in various home-made solutions to benefit his garden with intriguing planters.

It is not likely that too many readers - at least in Europe - will be growing Proteas but of course others have more amenable climates for such plants. Robbie Blackhall-Miles FLS is working in Wales on the study of such plants and hopes to  discover in time that more are able to be grown in the UK than was previously imagined.Plants which are already popular and grown with success in many parts of the world are the Hepaticas - we are given tips by Sefi and Fritz Kummert in Austria and  the Forum's Michael Campbell in Co. Clare, Ireland of their methods of growing these plants.

Finally, we present an offer to get involved with the printing of a new book and a chance to pre-order.....  read the IRG to learn more -  or click HERE



Be inspired - get involved!

Narcissus dubius  photo Gerrit Eijkelenboom

This month we discover what floral pleasures may be found over winter and early spring in Spain - a country where some of us are lucky enough to travel at such times. Gerrit Eijkelenboom tells us about the plants he and his wife, Iep, enjoy while they spend the winter months near Calpe. Matt Topsfield also journeyed to Spain last March - to make a study of the narcissus in flower then, following the earlier example of John Blanchard in 1986 – Matt shares with us here some of the other flowers he found on the trip, which was partly supported by an SRGC Exploration Grant and part “crowd-funded”.
