 David  Millward  will talk at the  event. He will give two talks based  on his  many travels  in Turkey and  Greece, in spring, summer  and  autumn, that will take  us  deep  into the  wild  areas where the  spring  bulbs  flourish. David  is  the  Edinburgh Show  Secretary and  chairman of the  SRGC Show  Secretaries committee. He  has won several Forrest  Medal, including a  couple  for  his  magnificent  pan of  Narcissus obesus  Lee Martin Form.  David, a  geologist,  co-authored  the  book, 'Alpine Plants: Ecology  for Gardeners' with John Good.

As  usual at the  early  bulb day there will be  a  number  of  nurseries selling a  wide  range  of  plants. We hope that  members will support  us  by bringing many  plants for the  50:50 plant sale, whose  sales will help to meet the  costs  of the  event.    Further  information will be  in the  2020 Show  Schedule.

SRGC Discussion Weekend 2020
« Reply #3 on: April 08, 2020, 11:59:52 AM »
SRGC Discussion Weekend 2020 is cancelled.

Note  to  Registrants :

You may be concerned about the scheduled Discussion Weekend at Grantown-on-Spey in the light of the recent travel restrictions imposed to limit the spread of the viral pandemic. At present the Grant Arms Hotel is closed and the date for re-opening the hotel is not yet determined but will be dependent upon national guidelines regarding travel.

As a result, the SRGC Council have unanimously approved the cancellation of this meeting for 2020 and I have therefore returned your cheque for the booking fee which was not presented for payment. This is yet another unfortunate and disappointing cancellation in a year when they have been many others, but it was felt that we should take decisive action at an early stage.

If you have attended Discussion Weekends at the Grant Arms before you will know that we have been made most welcome by the staff and it has proved to be an excellent venue for the weekend. Once the travel restrictions begin to be relaxed, it is venues like this which will need the support of their visitors to rebuild their business.

We have therefore provisionally booked the hotel for October 2021 and revised plans will be notified in The Rock Garden and on the SRGC website as the situation develops: we look forward to meeting you there in 2021.

Keep safe and well.
Kind regards,
Peter Maguire (Registration Secretary)
