Volume 10

Part 1


Welcome. In this issue of The Plantsman Margareth Hop assesses Corylopsis, a genus that is often overlooked. We also hear about the RHS trial of spring-flowering Crocus, new pests of ornamentals that have arrived in the UK in the past 40 years, how plant ageing affects the propagation of older cultivars, recently introduced Mahonia and hybrids, and Acer grown for their flowers. Additionally, a new series of plantsperson biographies kicks off with Maurice Mason.
