At this time of year in the northern hemisphere our thoughts are buoyed by

the increasing evidence of spring flowers and many of these are “bulbs”

in the widest sense. The passion and fashion for Galanthus continues unabated

so we thought a report from landscape architect and galanthophile

Hagen Engelmann from Cottbus, on some of his favourite snowdrops,

which are not “just white” was appropriate. 

Christophe Ruby from the Hof Botanical Garden makes a plea in his article

for more enthusiasm for a plant he considers to be too often overlooked for use in our gardens.

 Finally, Wim Boens, the Belgian plantsman so active for the VRV provides an update to his

previous article on the Genus Eranthis.

 

Yes, this is an issue of IRG heavy with “bulbs” – if you feel this to be an overload then we invite you to submit a piece on a plant that interests you!     editor@internationalrockgardener.net

Totally smitten with Veratrum (Melanthium) fimbriatum, and the various virescent Galanthus are perfection, another fine edition.

May IRG brings tales of  a small raised crevice bed + report of  2014 SRGC Summer Day - to tempt you for this year's event on 22nd August- and a reminder of the importance of pollinators

 

We have read in past issues of the IRG about the construction of large crevice beds, built for public gardens, utilising tonnes of rock to produce impressive gardens that can be enjoyed by masses of people. This month we will learn how one person has achieved a project to build a crevice garden in a domestic setting, on a scale appropriate to that and using materials that are more readily available to the private gardener. Matthew Stuttard felt he learned a lot from the SRGC Forum about how to plan and tackle his scheme and was inspired to share the process with us, to help others. Another way to learn from others in the Club is to attend lectures or our special events. One such is the SRGC "Summer Event" held in Dunblane. This year’s event is on August 22nd - the speaker will be Susann Nilsson. Her subjects will be 'Pulsatillas' in the morning and "Treasures in Mongolia and Eastern Russia" in the afternoon. All details of the talks and displays for the day can be found in the SRGC Show Schedules  -  http://files.srgc.net/show_info/SRGCShowSchedules2015.pdf

Of course  there is a full index : http://files.srgc.net/journals/IRGIndex65.pdf
