The Plantsman

September 2013

In this issue of The Plantsman we hear about an RHS trial of hardy Chrysanthemum, the use of seaweed as fertilizer, an unusual new yellow Daphne from China, checking the identity of Hesperantha coccinea cultivars, a new name for a Rock peony, the annual Chelsea Plant of the Year award, perennial Lathyrus, Crocus on Thira, and Juno Iris that can be grown outside.
