    An appeal for help

    I have sadly suffered a number of plant losses this year, either due to neglect, lack of time or the darned hot summer we had without rain. The majority of the plants I can take on the chin, but the one I'm most distressed about is my very first purchase. I bought a garden centre plant in 2002 and kept it for years, but now it's gone. So, if anyone out there has ever received a plant from me labelled (SH01 or SH001 or al-SH001) AND (S.x rehderi or S. rehderi "2002") and you have a cutting to spare I would love to hear from you. A bit of a long shot, I know, but I have to try! Thanks

    And thanks to Sheila for listing and coordinating the auctions on the forum!! It all reminds me that I need to make contact with Roger Thomas (the original donor of the plants) because I believe he has more plants to pass on to the CPS. If that happens They will probably be auctioned here again, so watch this space.

    No problem! Just glad to have a bit more room in the polytunnel now!

    I am please to say that the last few plants, which were sold through the forum, have been posted to the respective winners. To be honest, I'm glad it's over!! :) I shall shortly be sending a paypal payment to the CPS for £100, which was raised by the auctions, which will be split 50:50 between the CPS conservation fund and the general running of CPUK. Thank you for all that bid and well done to the winners!
  6. They will most likely get bundled together with other plants that are auctioned. If that doesn't work I guess I'm open to offers. If I get none, it's the great greenhouse in the sky for them!

    Auction 441 Sarracenia purpurea hybrid

    Thanks BHJ. Money has been received. I probably won't get a chance to send your plant until the weekend.
  12. Having seen a similar looking plant in someone's collection over the weekend, I now suspect that this may be rubra ssp wherryi, but no guarantees!
