Just completed the index of Sedum Society Newsletters 1-120. Knackered!

The index will be published on the Sedum website. Allied with the photographs (see above) this should prove to be useful resource for all sedum (and hylotelephium, rhodiola, phedimus, petrosedum) -holics.

 The 111-120 section will be issued with a forthcoming newsletter.

Great job, Frazer. A readily available index will of course be a help for any searches and  with luck, seeing the variety of articles  may well assist in attracting members.
