In 2003 Ian Young began to write a weekly diary for the SRGC website to share his experiences with growing bulbs and the continuing story of our garden. Some years later, he has just published the 800th Bulb Log Diary. All these are available free on the SRGC website. Many will be aware of the SRGC aim of sharing information and encouraging interest in alpine, woodland plants and bulbs as freely as possible, as with the International Rock Gardener e-magazine and much more on the SRGC Site.
Of course, NARGS have followed SRGC in providing a huge number of back issues of the NARGS bulletin on line, in the same open fashion of SRGC.
Ian decided, rather than write a book for a well-known publisher, he would make his "erythroniums in Cultivation" available online for free. This can be found at this link
But back to the Bulb Log - the 800th issue can be found here:
This is the 800th Bulb Log, online every week since January 2003.
The Bulb Log Diary covers a lot more than bulbs and this week Ian features Rhododendrons.
All 800 Bulb Logs can be found from this page : http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/index.php?log=bulb
We are aware that many North American member s already read the Bulb Log- but perhaps this will introduce it to some newer members! Enjoy!
