IRG 44 August 2013 (click to follow link)


This month we follow the renewal of the garden in British Columbia
of our late colleague Joyce Carruthers by her daughter Amanda with the help of ZZ and friends.

Trond Hřy describes the plants seen on Svalbard in the north west of Norway,
a region he has visited several times, the first time as a student back in 1977.
Trond shared his trip both here in the SRGC Forum and in the NARGS forum - the IRG is now the beneficiary!
 
World of Bulbs features late summer/autumn crocus from J. Ian Young, writer of the Bulb Log,
along with some photos of these in the wild from Johan Nilson of Gothenburg Botanic Garden.

IRG  46 - October 2013

Is there any wonder that gardeners are always talking about the weather when there seems to be little in the way of steady seasonal temperatures  in the last year or so ? Here in the UK we are hurtling from sunshine that promises "shirt sleeve weather"  to sharp overnight frosts. In Australia there are reports of  terrible fires threatening life and homes and other friends are worrying about unaturally  hot days that are putting paid to flowers at a fast rate.

We can but hope that the IRG provides a spot of gentle relief from such stresses as Grahame Ware praises  a Lewisia named for a film star, we view some great plants from the Karabet region and find a plea not to ignore a remarkable tulip.

Main IRG page where all issues are available: http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/index.php?log=international
 
In contrast to the IRG  photos from the Karabet  Pass, here is a Merendera kurdica cultivated in a pot by Peter Clarke- this photo from elsewhere in  the Forum  -

 This month the IRG breaks with habit to present a single genus issue.
 Eranthis, ( also known, confusingly, as is often the case with common names, as Winter Aconites) are one of the delights of late winter, early spring  in the garden. Wim Boens explores the main species and a number of cultivars of this increasingly popular plant.
 
 Of course, wild flowers tend to be all the more beautiful by their habit of carpeting the ground and in Carolyn Walker's blog, she shows  how charming  Eranthis  in quantity can be ***.  For most of the new cultivars, though,  these are still being enjoyed, for the most part, as small plants in pots  but in time these  plants should  prove to be as valuable in our gardens as the presently widespread species.

***The cultivar ‘Lightning’ was actually selected from the park that Carolyn profiled in her post..
 
Even as Wim has collated his lists of cultivars, yet more are being shown in the pages of the SRGC Forum  as well as examples of variants  in the species
 
Three cultivars pictured by Hagen Engelmann :  'Uckroer  Frühlingsonne',  'Andenken an Johannes Raschke'  (interior),  'Winterzauber'  ( buds)

 

Eranthis pinnatifida in the garden of Poul Erik Eriksen in Denmark.

The February 2014 issue of IRG is  our fiftieth magazine.

There is a strongly North American flavour from some of our Canadian contributors – though not necessarily about North American plants :
 
Dracocephalum  by Grahame Ware


Dracocephalum purdonii , shown in the Forum by Lori Skulski


A report on Paul Spriggs’ Crevice Garden Demonstration by June Strandberg, with  photos from  June S. and Barb Lemoine of VIRAGS


Phlox diffusa in the wild by Dr. Hans Roemer




Two pictures of Phlox diffusa in the wild by Tony Willis, shared in the SRGC Forum

 
Thank you for your continuing support!

The IRG this month brings its readers the latest paper describing new  Crocus species from  Jānis Rukšāns the well-known bulb expert.
Dr Rukšāns is the author, in English, of the book Crocuses: A complete Guide to the Genus and Buried Treasures: finding and Growing the World’s Choicest Bulbs, as well as several titles in Latvian, his native tongue.  We also have Dr Rukšāns comments on the recent paper by Ingo Schneider on Crocus brachyfilus  vis ŕ vis  C. elegans as well as his reiteration of his decision to re-classify some of his earlier namings from subspecies to species status.

IRG 54 June 2014 :
http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2014Jun261403795157IRG54June2014.pdf

We find ourselves halfway through the year – this hardly seems possible but the calendar does not lie even if some plants are ahead or behind of what we consider “normal”. The IRG for June contains a mix of plants, places and contributors for your mid-year consideration, from Wales via China and the Czech Republic to Denmark and South America – where, coincidentally, many Welsh people have settled over the years – it is truly a small world.

 
Gentiana altorum from Halda and Jurasek


Campanula raineri 'Alba' in a trough - John Good.

Updated  IRG Index link :  http://files.srgc.net/journals/IRGIndex54.pdf 
 
 
Primula sieboldii from  John Good.
 
A selection of photos from Trond Hřy which were not able to be used in the IRG 51 of March 2014 is now published as a supplement to that issue.  It can be downloaded from this link: http://files.srgc.net/journals/PhotoSupplementtoIRG51.pdf
Trond repeats his thanks to Kok van Herk for his assistance in checking the plant names.


Oxalis san-romanii

The flora of South America continues to exercise a fascination among growers, as can be seen from the abundance of articles and books on the subject being published. The supplement lists some of the most recent of these books.
