Next HHPS Meeting | Talk on Alpines | Christmas Party | December 6th

Hello Everyone,

Coming up this weekend is our final meeting of 2014, which features a talk by alpine plant expert, Jim Almond: “Something for Everyone”

Jim is a keen grower/exhibitor of alpine plants, a hobby which has given him much pleasure for the past 20 years. Specialising in Primulaceae, he has a large rare bulb collection, and is also a member of the Alpine Garden Society judging panel. This talk should appeal to any audience of discriminating ‘plants-people’.irnar

Autumn bulbs, berries and colour; summer herbaceous plants; the odd tree; fabulous foliage and the occasional shrub. Specific genera include Cyclamen, Anemonella, Hepatica, Rhododendron and Daphne – yes, something for everyone. He comes very highly recommended by other HPS groups.

Jim’s website can be found here: http://freespace.virgin.net/almond.jim/

Jim’s talk will be followed by our Christmas Party!
