Received my copy today and it is an interesting booklet, such a shame it's mostly about Galanthus...would have been so much nicer with a lot more Eranthis and Leucojum  ;) ;)  ;D ;D  :P :P

Great to see the yellow 'Trym' seedling is now named 'Golden Fleece'

One of the gracilis x 'Trym' in the swarm of seedlings in Veronica Cross' garden is now named 'Veronica Cross'

Re: The 'Drop Out AND VOLUME 2!

Just as I had almost got over the surprise of this publication arriving, I get a second one!  Not the same one again, you understand, but VOLUME 2 (this one dated Saturday 8th November 2014).  More on 'pocs' and 'terries' including an answer to my question on pronunciation, no less!  And more beautiful colour photographs.  By the way, I think I'm getting them first because of my proximity to their point of origin.
