Invitation for the  Czech - German meeting of the lovers of  alpine plants in the Botanical Garden of the University of Tübingen on November 22, 2015
Assemble from 9.00, Start 10:00 am


From Brigitte Fiebig......
Dear friends of alpine plants,
This year it is our turn to host this meeting and so I am pleased today to invite you to our program in the Botanical Garden of the University of Tübingen.
The presentations will take place on Sunday, 22 November.
We start at 10:00 clock in the main  Botany auditorium (Address: Auf der Morgenstelle 3, 72076 Tübingen), next to the main entrance of the Botanical Garden. Outside the main entrance of the garden you can park for free. You may arrive from  9am.
Two speakers come from the Czech Republic:  Vojtech Holubec and Zdeněk Zvolánek.
They will  report on "Plants of the Pamirs, Central Asia, photos of the last expedition and from 2006" and "Rock gardens in the Czech Karst, experience with heat-resistant rock garden plants". Both presentations will be held in English and translated by Rudolf White.
Dieter Zschummel has travelled this year in  north-eastern Turkey and will talk about his local plant finds and landscape impressions.
Michael Mauser and Brigitte Fiebig  traveled this year  in Iran for the first time, mainly to Dionysia sites to see and save cuttings to take home.

For those of you who want to offer plants for sale or exchange, we can provide tables available. Please enter the space required when booking.
Since we do not have a restaurant in the Botanical Garden,  food and drinks will be organised. To simplify things, it will be assumed that all who register, will have lunch.Please inform when booking if you require a vegetarian  option. . The costs will be allocated and are in addition to the fee for the lectures. Thus, we will charge 25 € for meals and lectures.
For overnight accommodation, please look on the Internet at: http://www.tuebingen-info.de. In addition to our conference Tübingen is well worth a stay or short break.
Please book before 4th  November, so full plans can be made.

I look forward to your visit, interesting lectures, a lively exchange and a pleasant gathering.

Best regards,

Brigitte Fiebig

IRG 77 - May 2016

Canadian David Sellars takes us to Italy SPAIN (can you tell geography is not my strong point?! :-[ It's the Girod'Italia at the moment- I'm distracted!) ), we visit a fine nursery with  a new rock garden in Czechia and learn of a very young horticulturist, Molly Hall from England with an interest in heathers.

It's a bit of a whizz around the world!

Last month .... Molly Hall  helped over 100 childres pot up a #heather for Fathers Day @RHSWisley for the #Heathersociety



 Molly has also  been  voted RHS Young School Gardener 2016 - KS3 (11-14) Winner for her work on heathers !

 Well done Molly!
