    Hi Richard, Can you answer the question I have regarding posting images. Made it in general discussion. Cheers Nigel

    Anyone know why I can only upload images that have a max size of 10 kB? Yes I do mean 0.01 mb! NigelHC
  3. Madagascariensis doesn’t grow that tall, perhaps 6 inches. It’s a suck it and see situation as they are in my opinion best in full sun in a greenhouse, but start where you planned and if it starts to look pale and leggy, then move it closer. Remember, these plants are adapted to high light levels. regards Nigel HC

    Should I consider D. Amirabilis to be an annual?

    They can be red in intense light. The lack of new leaves is due to the plant spending its energies on producing two flower stalks. I remove mine (from most Drosera) and they grow better for it! Nigel HC

    See it at the shows sometimes. Ignore them, their ignorance will remain long after you’ve forgotten about them. Nigel HC
  6. Hi All, Dennis, Roy Cheek, and myself attended Adrian’s funeral yesterday. It was great to hear the eulogy, delivered by Adrian’s cousin Nikolai Tolstoy (I knew there was a family link there somewhere), spinning yarns of his years with Adrian. The tiny church in Barton St David was full, the sun was shining, and there was a gathering in one of Adrian’s favourite haunts, The Quarry in Keinton, afterwards. A touching, and deeply personal tribute to a man, who for me and many of us, was the introduction to this remarkable group of plants. Nigel H-C

    Chelsea 2018

    Nobody seems to have mentioned Chelsea on the forum, unless I’ve missed it somewhere. The Society and myself were awarded silver-gilt, and Hampshire CP and Wack’s Wicked Plants we’re both awarded gold. Regards Nigel H-C

    D. Gigantea from seeds

    Don't worry! It's the UK CPS the article went in. It also went in the December 2013 Plantsman, one of the RHS magazines. Message me your email address and I'll send it to you. Regards Nigel H-C
