It is a pleasure this month to publish the description of a viola named for one of the greatly missed personalities of plant-hunting.  This article, as the viola, is from South America, described by John Watson who fondly remembers his travels with Martyn Cheese in “days gone by”. It is exciting for us to publish such articles with  open access to bring such knowledge to a wide  audience and, we  hope, a fitting  memorial to John’s  lost friend. 

Kind thanks to all who take the  time  and  trouble  to contact the IRG team to give  us  your  reaction to the  magazine’s contents. These, and submissions of articles, are always  welcome – by email, please, to editor@internationalrockgardener.net   We look forward to hearing  from you. 

Back to this  issue – where Zdeněk Zvolánek introduces some plants from the Estonian garden of the charming  gardener and  traveller, Svetlana Polonskaja, and  she herself  comments on some  of her  favourite plants in her rock garden.  To finish this month we have a report from  Zdeněk Zvolánek about the  Beauty  Slope during a  hot  summer.

 IRG118 - October 2019
IRG this month pays tribute to the SRGC Discussion Weekend with an article on the propagation of narcissus and  galanthus  bulbs from one of the Speakers  there, Anne  Wright of  Dryad Nursery in Yorkshire.  Anne has tremendous  success  with her breeding  programmes of these bulbs and is kind enough to share her tips for ‘chipping’ the bulbs to speed  up their increase.
Another of the  speakers  at the  DWE was  Dr  Dimitri  Zubov – we  are  delighted to  present a photo essay by Dimitri and regular  IRG author, Jānis Rukšāns of  some of the  plants they  have  seen  in  Iran.
