The Plantsman

June 2010

Welcome. In this issue of The Plantsman we learn how to propagate woody plants using long cuttings. We also hear about plant hunting for Himalayan Primula, identity problems in Berberis, iridescent plants, Veratrum, Itea and the RHS trial of Cortaderia. Additionally, two eminent plantsmen discuss plant hardiness and the pitfalls of the various rating systems.
