The Plantsman

September 2015

In this issue of The Plantsman we hear about the best white-barked birch recommendations, and which garden plant diseases we can expect to see more of due to climate change. You can also read about the RHS trial of Mexican Salvia, a major survey of Woodwardia ferns in cultivation and three of the most magnificent large-flowered hoyas. We discuss the winners and contenders for Chelsea Plant of the Year, along with pioneering bulb dealer John Hoog, and Tropaeolum argentinum entering cultivation. Additionally, Alan Bloom is the focus of our plantsperson biography.
