The Plantsman

December 2016

In this issue of The Plantsman we look at Acer griseum in cultivation and the wild, propagating Cyclamen by the unusual method of cuttings, Dahlia species in Mexico, ferns in the northwest USA, collecting new proteas and their relatives, and the benefits of urban horticulture. Additionally, the plantsperson biography is on Valerie Finnis.
