The Plantsman

March 2017

In this issue of The Plantsman we look at Mexican oaks in cultivation, growing Fagus hayatae, Leucojum and its expanding range of cultivars, a new name for Oriental poppies, the many hybrids between Digitalis species, new camellias from the forests of Vietnam, a Victorian Gladiolus reinstated, insights into honey fungus, and a biography of Sir Peter Smithers.
