Hi Lori,
That's a really good question and to be honest it had not crossed our minds - it's the first time the department has organised anything like this ourselves! Whether or not we can publish the proceedings in some way will depend on the goodwill of our speakers allowing this. I will ask them if they would consider this. Thanks for the idea!

Wonderful pics of Massonia.  I'd love to grow all of them, particularly that purple leafed form.  I currenntly grow depressa, jasminiflora (seedlings that have flowered range white to pale mauve) and seedlings of pustulata which may actually be echinata I have been informed since.  I really love your superior flower form of the jasminiflora.  Now I'd just like to find plants or seeds of all of these, particularly that form of jasminiflora, forms of pustulata and the little pygmae.  Wonderful, wonderful plants that add a touch of interest in their leaves alone (like the Haemanthus).

Great log, and I look forward to the Daubenya (a genus I have been wanting to grow for many years but haven't been able to acquire yet) log next week, particularly the pictures.  I don't think I've seen a pic of a Dubenya yet that I haven't liked.... the flowers are so intricate and extremely desirable (spoken like a collector of course!!  ;D)

Thanks for the log.  8)
Cheers.

Paul,

Have you any idea of how many people can attend the hepatica
talks?  I missed out on the Czech conference because fewer
could fit in the lecture room than wanted to be there.  Is this
likely to happen at Wisley?

Hi Diane,
Gosh are you really considering coming from Canada? That's brilliant! The maximum number of people we are allowed in the meeting room is 100, so that is how many tickets will be available. I have no idea how popular this is going to be - we have not done anything like this with Hepatica before, so have nothing to go on. I suppose "book early to avoid disappointment" would be the best advice.

Maggi what the hell are you going to do with beansprouts? You're not turning into a veggie are you? I always had you down as a good trencherwoman like myself. The thought of you heading towards size 0 is too depressing for words.

Fear not, Friend, I will feed any sprouted beans to the neighbour's bunny rabbits. I only eat such stuff myself (with generous helpings of smoked bacon and salami) to help me work up an appetite in warm weather.....! ::)
