A very fitting tribute to a great gardener. Thanks to Maggi for putting it all together and to all the contributors.

Thank you David - it is  sad to lose these  major figures but at least we can commemorate them in some way.

Hello Maggi, indeed a very special plantsman we only met him the once when we visited his garden with Jiri, he had a sparkle in his eye when he talked about his garden not to be forgotten, cheers Ian the Christie kind
