Again Many thanks to Mike and Helen for their hospitality, plants and of course the Rush primer!!

There wasnt as many there as usual..... Are you all saving yourselves for the EEE?


There were still 45 people including 9 from Germany and Keith Wilson from Holland.

Many thanks for a superb weeknd and I ended up with 10 new plants myself!

See some of you on the 4th of July.

Hi,
I use 13 x 13 x 13cm or 15 x 15 x 15 cm for the most large species and hybridads. Smaller growing ones are in 11 x 11 x 11cm sized pots.

Some quick mobile photos of what I picked up from Mike's:

Posted Image

S. flava 'Burgundy' (left), Sandy Creek Road ornata (back), Milton rubricorpora (front). I'd probably describe it as atropurpurea.

Posted Image

'Frogman' (back), excellens x leucophylla (front)

Posted Image

'Scarlet Queen'

Posted Image

Couple of VFTs. The one on the right has distinctive teeth - some are slightly fused.

Posted Image
oreophila x leucophylla (back right), 'Elizabeth' (left)


Posted Image
leucophylla, Perdido AL

Posted Image
Blurry giant green DM08

flava var. maxima, Sussex Co, VA



And not from Mike's, but something that arrived a couple of days before - two minors from Nigel Hewitt-Cooper:
