2017-01-23 Thread Graham Nicholls
Lovely photo Cliff. As an afterthought I clicked on the campanula list at the 
left hand side and was amazed to see how many different species/ cultivars that 
I once grew and exhibited but have lost in the few years since the greenhouse 
collapsed and having a mini stroke 18 months ago. If there is anyone out there 
with spares of any I would be grateful to start building a collection again.
cheers

Thanks for a most interesting article and fantastic pictures, even the one that 
drew an expletive!  Whilst I have little knowledge of bees or wasps I try to 
encourage them both in my garden and allotment.  Although the wasps that built 
a nest in one of my allotment compost heaps did cause some problems with my 
later apples,  although they never stung anyone.  I assume that in southern 
England we have a similar diversity of bees to those across the water.
Thanks again for a full and interesting article.

Re: [Alpine-l] Harry Dewey

2016-03-07 Thread James Waddick
Dear John and all,

Thanks for your kindly tribute to Harry Dewey.  Although we never met, 
we exchanged hundreds of emails both privately and via Alpine-l. At the time it 
was unique, exciting and involving. I corresponded with some wonderful people 
in the US, the UK and elsewhere. 

Harry managed to keep the discourse active, polite and on topic. These 
are characters sorely lacking all too often in today’s alternatives. 

I exchanged those similar padded envelopes with more than my share of 
garden goodies many of which still thrive and remind me of long gone wonderful 
gardeners. I doubt today’s gardeners, and not just "Alpine gardeners", can 
appreciate the fun and import of the posts and activities that Harry originated 
and supported.  He was a unique garden personality. Without him, Alpine-l lost 
its way for the most part. Various replacements are just not the same. 

Yes he is missed, but still appreciated.Yours is a well 
deserved and modest tribute to a very special man.  Thanks, 
Jim Waddick

Harry T. Dewey

Long-time NARGS member Harry Tillinghast Dewey died February 17, 2016, age 95. 
He was a professor of Library Science at various colleges and universities. 
Harry served NARGS in many capacities, in particular the Potomac Valley 
Chapter, helping organize national meetings. He was quick to see the potential 
of the Internet and in 1995 he founded Alpine-L, a worldwide electronic rock 
garden discussion group established as a Listserv, which he managed daily from 
his home in Beltsville, Maryland.  Harry described the Internet and its 
potential use to gardeners in the Rock Garden Quarterly in 2001 (vol. 59, pp 
115-124).  He received the NARGS Award of Merit in 2002.  Harry was a keen and 
interesting gardener, story teller and jokester, with a raucous, infectious 
laugh.  Born on February 29, he died just shy of his 24th bissextile birthday.  
Harry is survived by his spouse, E. Thomas Comstock.  Condolences to Tom at 
3904 Parsons Rd., Chevy Chase, MD 20185-6733.

2016-01-26 Thread penstemon
I just recently received a few seed of Aquilegia nivalis. Does anyone have any 
experience / advice in germinating that seed. Thank you.
 

Seeds of almost all species of Aquilegia respond to stratification for 1-3 
months at 4C, followed by fairly quick germination at ca. 20C. 

Alternatively, seeds can be sown outdoors in pots, now, for germination in 
spring, though with some species this can take two winters.

Re: [Alpine-l] Gentiana lutea

2015-09-11 Thread lilactreefarm
Sharon,
   How lovely to have Gentiana lutea self-seeding in the garden. I have not had 
more than the one plant (though it has formed three 'rosettes')' and it took 
several years from seed to flowering. So I shall make an effort to move the 
plant, though I suppose its roots may go a very long way down, but, yes, I 
would very much appreciate some seed 'just in case.' If I can get it to 
germinate, there will be an interesting race to see if it will flower before...
   This last consideration applies to one of the trees we have grown from seed, 
Cladrastis sinensis, the Chinese version of the North American yellowwood. It 
is now about 12'; the flowers do not appear on young trees, so my chances of 
seeing it in flower, always assuming it survives our winters, are shrinking. 
But at Hillier this July I was lucky enough to see a 40' (?) version in full 
flower.
   Good to hear from you, and thank you for responding to my questions.
Brian

many years, what kind of renewed conditions I should try to give the plant 
(where is your plant growing?) and whether all of this is pointless given the 
size and age of the plant. Can you offer me some help with these questions?

Well said, Brian!  I will use this to explain better to visitors to the E.H. 
Lohbrunner Alpine Garden in Vancouver, BC.
While it’s essentially at sea level, the scale of the garden allows many large 
plants to be grown, including those which
look good in association with its large rocks!

I quote, from an AGS publication.

Definitions “Alpine or rock garden plant”: The term covers all plants, 
including shrubs, suitable for
cultivation in a rock garden of moderate size or in an unheated frame or alpine 
house. It excludes any plants
which will not survive an average British winter under such conditions but 
includes many plants which
do not necessarily grow in mountainous regions.

Many alpines grow at sea level, Dryas octopetala for instance in Scotland, 
and several orchids in alpine meadows and woodlands in europe.

 Well, it's good to see that there are at least some folks reading this page!
 I will point out that the title of the e-magazine is the International Rock 
 Gardener
 and there is no doubt that alpines -and terrestrial orchids - are happy  
 companions in many a rock garden.
 Perhaps it is the insistence on a very narrow definition of alpine that is 
 the cause of the lack of activity here?
 I suppose there are people who only grow one type of plant - though I must 
 say I have met very few in my time and
 had imagined that those interested in Alpines would have at least a passing 
 interest in the plants featured in the IRG.
 The IRG concentrates in the main on plants able to be grown in the open 
 garden - which I suppose excludes a
 large number of alpines in a large number of countries - we hope to improve 
 gardens and the pleasure gained from
 them, rather than limit our horizons unnaturally.
  
 I thank Brian Whyer for his comment on the AGS definition of its interests - 
 which are, of course, very similar to those
 of the Scottish Rock Garden Club, which hosts the IRG. Happily the SRGC and 
 AGS are open in their definitons,
 which probably leads to their success in enthusing and informing about  what 
 is a fascinating range of plants, which may
 widely be referred to, I  would say, as smaller types of  wildflowers for a 
 range of climates and situations -  some of which will be
 truly alpine.

Re: [Alpine-l] The latest issue of the International Rock Gardener e-magazine

2015-07-31 Thread Paige Woodward
I don’t see the problem with mentioning Dactylorhiza or ground orchids that 
dwell in Crete. We are fortunate that many plants which have survived ice ages, 
including a lot of ground orchids, retain a tolerance for cold that they don’t 
necessarily require at the moment. 

Few of us live in the alpine zone, so alpine gardening tends to be about 
growing plants that tolerate a range of conditions, both alpine and temperate. 
The target keeps moving. 

Good evening, all.

I suspect that was one reason for their disappearance from horticulture; the 
other being difficulty of propagation. The late Homer Hill, of Arvada, 
Colorado, propagated them by root cuttings.
I had ‘Mary Maslin’ in the garden here for many years; it died last winter. 
Still have ‘Arroyito’, Homer’s introduction, which is probably a cross 
between ‘Arroyo’ and Phlox subulata. P. subulata isn’t winter hardy in my 
garden, but ‘Arroyito’ is. It has no above-ground growth in the winter.

Once you get to the switch-backs, you are at The Hell Roaring Creek entrance into Rock Creek. There are several lakes and meadows of flower all of which require a hike in. Once you are on top of the pass, there should be a tremendous amount of flowers. There are several lakes along the highway which should have flowers near them (Island, Beartooth, Long, and Little Bear Lakes).

 This may not be of
 interest to most of Alpine-L as the species depicted at my
 new identification website are growing wild between 9,400
 and 10,200 feet in Colorado, which is the Upper Montane to
 Lower Subalpine Zones.  The link is:  http://www.picturetrail.com/snowtrekker7 
I
 named the site Wildflowers of Peak 7, Breckenridge,
 Colorado.  So far, there are 260 species arranged
 by color and (I'm sorry) identified first by common
 name.  I created the site for the locals who are not
 especially plant savvy but who have a budding
 interest in knowing the names and details of the plants they
 see while walking their dog, biking or hiking on
 neighborhood trails (which are within the wooded White River
 National Forest).  That's why I chose to arrange
 them by color and use the local
 names. However, within each color
 album, the plants are arranged alphabetically by botanical
 family and then alphabetically within the respective family
 by genus and then by species. 
  I'm limited by PictureTrail
 to a certain size image and a certain number of individual
 photos so I have created composite photos of each species
 showing the important structural
 parts. Many of the short species
 are in my experimental gardens.  Even though they
 aren't true alpines from above treeline, their small
 stature and reliable, showy blooms work well for me in rocky
 crevices I have created in my rock

Hence, the name translates as wet or damp meadow which makes more sense than 
wet cheeks,


In German, “feuchtwange”, wet cheeks, but I still like my version, poetic 
license and all, better.

In the same way that I prefer the alternate etymology of the word “saxifraga”; 
an herb used to break up renal calculi. (The notion of a tiny plant being able 
to break rocks is a little far-fetched.)
(And I also like the Rhaeto-Romanic name for the plant: “fendacrap”.)

Re: [Alpine-l] [***SPAM***] new disease of aquilegias: downy mildew

2014-12-26 Thread Ted Wilcox
Is this downy mildew a relative of the downy mildew that destroyed virtually 
all of the busy lizzies (Impatiens) that are(were) such a mainstay of summer 
bedding in England?  This year has been very damp and I have noticed powdery 
mildews (I assume) on a number of plants this year, certainly far more than I 
remember from years past. Last year I lost almost all of my tomatoes in the 
garden due to blight, the only plants thriving were three grafted plants. This 
year I did not grow any but from talking to others this year was as bad if not 
worse. Are the milder winters allowing the fungi to live longer so that they 
produce more spores or are there newer mildews and other fungal diseases 
developing.  


I will keep an eye on the aquilegias inn my garden (mainly self sown hybrids 
but worthy none the less). Thanks for the advice.

Another problem this year (of many) has been the Rosemary beetle but at least 
you can physically crush them although that is not possible with spores and 
even if gardeners could get chemicals to control them I prefer the more 
physical approach.

Re: [Alpine-l] Cyclamen

2014-12-23 Thread Brian Whyer
I was stunned by the size of the Cyclamen bulbs.  I 

thought my four-inch bulbs were enormous.  Oddly, though, the blooms seemed 
not to be comparatively larger.  How strange!

You would not expect them to get larger, just more numerous. Look at some of 
the AGS show plants by Google(ing) AGS Cyclamen greacum, and images. The thing 
that always fools me is how they are made to flower in nice neat evenly spaced 
circles when my plants in pots insist on the flower stems running to the pot 
edge and then rising. Maybe with age it will happen; if I can wait that long.

My larger greacum are in pots tight against a south facing wall but will be 
moved under glass if we get a real winter. Not tried them in the ground proper 
in this garden yet. Don't really have a nice warm flower bed against a wall. An 
ancient wild form persicum has survived in a pot outside for some years but 
lost its cental growing point.

Incidentally, I planted my bulbs about an inch underground, but they move to 
the surface and are easily seen with about half the bulb above ground.

All of my cyclamen do the same thing. I figure they know what they want better 
than I do. I usually plant them that way, with just the lower half in the 
ground.
I knew cyclamen tubers could get big, but not that big

Re: [Alpine-l] Alpine-L Gallery Image Upload (3632) Townsendia spathulata (Pryor Mtn form)

2014-04-07 Thread Graham Nicholls

Hi Anne, Ev Whittemore discovered it growing in the Pryors many years ago and I 
first managed to grow it from seed collected by her. The plants around now have 
been grown first from seed collected by Brian Welzenbach of Bozeman MN then 
from seed from my own plants after hand pollination. Even better is the form 
grown from seeds collected by Brian and nicknamed 'Cottonballs' that makes 
furry cotton balls with white to lemon stemless flowers. Again hand pollination 
works here as well.
cheers
Graham

To Maggie Young,
   I loved your May and June issue of The International Rock Gardener so much 
I wanted all my chapter NARGS readers to see it.  I also am very interested in 
going to the Czech Republic.  We visited it when it was Czechoslovikia before I 
became really interested in rock gardening. Perhaps we could get some of our US 
people interested in going.

Maggi,
Yet another spectacular issue of IRG.  Loved Ian Christie's article, especially 
to see Mertensia maritima in situ.
No wonder I can't keep that one when I see where it grows.  Also the cordalis 
pictures were so beautiful.
The photography is always so excellent.  I feel I've had a preview of spring, 
which I hear is supposed to show
up here one of these days.

Dear Alpine Elves, 
My apologies for not letting you know eat the proper time about the February 
issue of International Rock Gardener-
 
IRG  #38 February 2013

Ian Christie has been lucky enough to travel to see plants in nature in many 
parts of the world but he never loses sight of the beauty that is available in 
his own country, Scotland. Scottish Mountains may not be the highest, but the 
landscape can be dramatic and plants of the mountain and woodland can be found 
even almost at the edge of the sea. Ian shares his delight in such plants. 

Ian Young, writes for the ‘world of bulbs’ on one of his favourite tubers, 
Corydalis solida and the garden forms of this plant that do well in North East 
Scotland. Ian has documented his experiences growing bulbs corms and tubers 
every week since 2003 in his Bulb Log Diary on the SRGC Site.

 Happy New Year!
  
 The good news is we made it through another year, albeit a crazier one than 
 normal, so less ‘free’ time and fewer pictures taken.  The bad news is that 
 the virus introduced here by Panayoti Kelaidis 6 or 7 years ago has continued 
 to spread.  5 areas of the garden have now been infected, meaning that they 
 have had to be turned over to the cultivation of hardy cacti, agaves, 
 succulents and other ‘xeric’ plants.  Actually, I had grown weary of doing 
 battle with various aril and Juno irises so it really wasn’t that hard a 
 decision to turn their quarters over to the expanding collection of cacti. 
 Despite their beauty the irises took up a lot of real estate, and were 
 rewarding for a very fleeting period every year.  Their homes were tailor 
 made for the cacti, which not only have spectacular flowers, they offer 
 year-round interest with their amazing forms and spines of many shapes and 
 colors.  For a few pictures see http://tinyurl.com/bbx9asu and 
 http://tinyurl.com/bfdrv3v.  Perfect drainage and dryness at the roots in 
 winter is at least as important as protection from the cold.  Three of the 
 ‘cactus patches’ are unprotected year-round; the one in front of the porch 
 has 8’ x 4’ polycarbonate covers from early December to the end of February, 
 and the long bed down the south side of the house has polycarbonate covers 
 over the same period, and a wrapping of frost blanket during January and 
 February.  The blanket provides about 10F of protection and really works, 
 providing a home for the more borderline temperature hardy plants.  There are 
 hundreds of species and forms/selections that will grow very happily in these 
 conditions, including many that I doubt have ever been seriously attempted in 
 this region.  They are not trouble free (some die), they have their own likes 
 and dislikes that need learning, and they certainly fight back, but they are 
 so rewarding.  Best of all, you can only get one or two rare Oncocyclus 
 irises for a hundred dollars but you can get about 20 cacti!  I’ve also 
 started growing a number from seed, and that is also fun once you learn a few 
 tricks, including how not to sunburn them.  Other treasures, such as 
 Asphodelus acaulis, love the same conditions and have been outside without 
 protection for 3 years now (http://tinyurl.com/acawvlf).  Nananthus 
 transvaalensis is one of my favorite succulents (http://tinyurl.com/aqtlyyb).

 (http://www.miles2go.com/), Sunscapes (Bill Adams; http://www.sunscapes.net/) 
 and Mesa Garden (www.mesagarden.com/).  High Country Gardens was also great 
 but has sadly just closed.
 Some other nice combinations this past year were Gazania linearis 
 self-seeding into Delospermas (http://tinyurl.com/bggnxt4), and back-lit Iris 
 albicans and Pulsatillas in seed (http://tinyurl.com/aunehpc).  Edgeworthia 
 chrysantha in several forms (http://tinyurl.com/ahtw9s6) continues to be the 
 best shrub in the whole garden and Epimedium Domino in the same link is one
