The Plantsman

March 2014

In this issue of The Plantsman we hear about the authenticity of old-fashioned sweet peas, hybrids between Dichroa and Hydrangea, natural rock gardens in Czechoslovakia, a new book 'Magnolias in Art & Cultivation', Oreopanax in cultivation, Scadoxus of central and east Africa, Betula albosinensis 'China Ruby', revising the Hillier Manual, and gardening in a changing climate. Additionally, the plantsperson biography is on Walter Ingwersen.
