Save Pietro Pellegrini's Botanical Garden

22 Oct 2014

Posted by pandalf in Carnivorous Plant Societies

Dear friends,

I share this petition to save Pietro Pellegrini's Botanical Garden. It's the only place dedicated to the protection, conservation and preservation of the exceptional Apuan Alps floristic richness, including the beautiful endemic species Pinguicula apuana and Pinguicula mariae (named by Casper, who described it, in honor of the botanist and garden’s curator Maria Ansaldi).
We need your help for promote and protect this reality, now increasingly threatened by bureaucratic problems and the advance of the marble quarries which are devastating life and flora of these unique mountains, baptized “Garden of Europe”.

Thank you for your attention!

Mike King's Open day, Saturday October 11th

01 Sep 2014

Posted by Mike King in Open Days & Events
Hi everyone,
Just a reminder that my 2nd open day is on Saturday October 11th at noon again.

The leucos in particular are putting up a lot of pitchers right now so should be a good display in time for the open day.

As usual, there will be plants for sale on the day and please feel free to bring any of your own for sale or swap.

Like last year, it is your chance to get divisions of rare material as I will be dividing to order on the day.

Light refreshments will be provided throughout the day so please let me know if you are coming so we can get enough food in.

G.F.P. Carnivorous Plant Calendar 2015

20 Jul 2014

Posted by Smir8810 in Carnivorous Plant Societies

Dear CP lovers,

 

since 2007 the German Carnivorous Plant Society (G. F. P. - Gesellschaft für Fleischfressende Pflanzen im deutschsprachigen Raum e. V.) yearly publishes a calendar of photos of carnviorous plants taken by society members and also other skilled photographers printed in very high quality. Some of you surely know about this and have also purchased one or the other of these calendars.

I´m happy tp present you the calendar for the year 2015:

 

Please visit this page to see previews of the calender 2015 

 

http://forum.carnivo...-kalender-2015/

 

It´s 30 x 45 cm in size, printed on 250 g glossy photo paper, 13 sheets (title plus 12 months), process-colour printing, double loop wire binding with hanger, black back cardboard 380 g, transperancy film covering title

 

Run: 300 copies

 

Price: 12,50 EUR (equals £9,90).

Available at: Kalenderversand [dot] GFP [at] gmail [dot] com (delete the brackets and spaces in front of and behind the "@" in your address line, please) :-) I have not activated Spam filters to make sure everyone who seriously wants to get a copy of the calendar will reach me via his email address. But I want to annoy Spam robots, I hope you understand.

 

Shipment costs:

 

1 copy can be sent as extra large letter for 8,00Eur (£6,34) everywhere in Europe (also Switzerland and other non EU countries).

 

2 copies are best shipped as two extra large letters each for 7,00 EUR everywhere in Europe. 3 - 6 calendars need to be shipped as a parcel for 17,00 EUR postage inside European Union.

Outside Europe it´s of course even more expensive! There are various zones for the rest of the world for the German Post with graduated shipment costs. For example one parcel (3-6 calendars) to the United States will cost 36,00 EUR.

After mail order (email) you´ll receive a reply your order has entried. I have not installed an auto reply so it may take a couple of hours `til I reply. If you shouldn´t receive a reply from me within 48 hours please contact me here via pm. In that case I haven´t received your email order for what reason ever.

 

By your order please give me the name (at least surname) of the addressee (most likely yourself) and his (your) full address including the country you live in. And please mention the number of copies you wish to have.

Payment is possible via international bank transfer or by PayPal (additional fees are due - normally 1,9% to 3,5% of the total amount you transfer + 0,35 EUR). It´s necessary to pay in advance.

 

I hope I have announced all relevant details on this calendar and how to get it. If not please ask me I´m a very patient man! ;-)

 

The calendar is bilingual (German/English). You´ll see the abbreviations of the weekdays (Monday to Sunday) (upper line German, lower line English), the calender weeks below and the number of the days in the last line.

 

All important German bank holidays are also mentioned.

On the back side of the title you´ll find an imprint also in German and English which gives you an overview of the photos and the photographers and also details about the shown plant(s) and the location where these pictures were taken.

 

*Uff* A lot of stuff to tell you.

 

I hope you´ll enjoy the calendar.

 

Kindest regards from the calendar team.
