Sorry, there's a mistake:
"In IRG13 we visited the Northern Ireland garden of Joan and Liam as they constructed a crevice garden"

 Oops, typo... that should be  IRG 14 February 2011
http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2011Feb241298591020IRG14_Feb_2011.pdf

 Edit by Maggi: the typo is corrected now and the IRG15  can be found here...

Time for a new IRG edition: http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2011Jul281311872373IRG19.pdf

This month's IRG has contributions from Jules Fouarge, Cedrik and Štěpánka Haškovec, Zdeněk Zvolánek and  J. Ian Young.

There is talk of Campanulas, Gentians and  Hypericums, from Turkey and the Himalayas,  as well as visits to the Picos de Europa and the Cascades.

If the IRG is showing you plants that you would love to grow, remember our wonderful Seed Exchange that can give you access to such seed and also support it with donations of seed from your own garden.

These photos of orchids from the Picos de Europa are from the Haškovecs.

The November Issue of IRG is online now  http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2011Nov241322170676IRG_23_-_November2011_.pdf

We return to the ever popular subject of Turkey and her plants .... this country is, of course, species rich and the appetite to learn more of the plants who inhabit that large and diverse region seems undimmed.

For the bulb lovers, J. Ian Young encourages an interest in the dwarf narcissus of the "hoop petticoat" type, so invaluable for flowering through the northern hemisphere winter as well as into spring.

Two years completed  :)

Friends, the December issue of IRG is now online.
A slight departure from our usual format, as you will see.   ;)

Thanks to all our contributors and helpers over the year and to those who have given encouragement. 
To Glassford Sprunt and Richard Green for their proof-reading, Maggi gives particular thanks.

Glassford continues to prepare the IRG Index and the up to date index for all 24 issues is included in the December 2011 issue.

With kindest regards for a Good New Year !

Welcome to a new year of IRG.

The January issue is now online, beginning with a look back to some plants that are popular now as they were forty years ago. Some things never change, it seems.

Grahame Ware explores his affection for a little snapdragon and Fritz Kummert shares his delight in an unassuming Idaho native.

February's issue of IRG is now online :
http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2012Feb241330043727IRG_26_Feb2012.pdf


Richard Green, one of the IRG team in Scotland,  gives  tips on how to become an international rock gardener by embarking upon foreign travel. The well known duo of Kirsten Andersen and Lars Hansen from Denmark introduce us to a some Daphnes.

The cover photo shows an Israeli iris in snow.... not in its homeland, where it has seen such conditions only once in the last century, but in the garden of bulb lover Hans Achilles in the Balearic Islands  8)
More photos of that iris in Hans' garden and coming into flower in  Israel, photos from Fred Depalle, in this thread : http://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=8382.0


ZZ gets confused by a stone cress  and we consider the origins of a cheery Scots broom........

March issue of IRG is now online.
This month we have:
The promise of primulas to come from John Mattingley, of Cluny Gardens in Perthshire, Scotland.

Dieter Zschummel introduces some quite enchanting annual gentians from China.

Gerd Knoche muses on some of his favourite violas - this time some yellow flowered species.

Kata Jozsa and Ferenc Zoltan  have photos of Crocus vernus subsp. albiflorus, tempting us to the Dolomites later in the year.... which leads us to a note about a new book which we think will become essential for any traveller to those mountains.

The May 2012 issue of IRG is now online. http://www.srgc.org.uk/logs/logdir/2012May241337894269IRG29-May2012.pdf

This month there are Tecophilaeas to charm you in shades of blue, Penstemons in shades of red and an Aconitum with wine-red promise.

We also catch up with the Primulas at Cluny.

And I can report that the sun has arrived in Scotland - this may even be Summer! :)
