A Sulco Gallery

64 pages, hardback, ISBN 0 9538134 2 8

For anyone interested in this very variable group of plants, this is valuable illustrated documentation of the appearance of many plants grown under field collection numbers. The modern 'lumped' species concept has unfortunately become a poor tool for horticultural collectors to label their plants which has left the collectors number method as the method of choice, albeit one that results in hard to remember tags for the plants.

Price is 15 for UK, 25 Euros (cash only) for Europe, 20 for buyers outside Europe. Orders to John Pilbeam (to whom sterling cheques should be made payable),
