Ive had a look at your Plants at the Alpine Garden Society Show in Caerleon February 2013 WPG project.
Excellent photos as always Eric.
Its a very early show - how do they manage to get those plants to flower so early?

I'm delighted you have taken the time and made the effort to create and publish that website, Eric.
No need to ask - please publish as many WPG projects as you wish :D

The http://www.ideasforgardens.net server is for use by anyone who wishes to create and publish a WPG project just like the ones on that website.
I upgraded that hosting some time ago. It has loads of web space.
Anyone with Ideas Genie Pro can use it.

That really is excellent work Eric - many thanks one again for your time and effort to make up that WPG website.
I see a lovely Trillium nivalis (new to me). Would that one grow outdoors?

I do hope to use these photos in the Master Database when I return to working on Ideas Genie software again (cant wait for that!).
Still adding features to Bank Genie at present, so it may be a few months yet.
Meanwhile, please keep those documented photos safe! They are priceless :)

As far as I am aware all Trilliums will grow outside in Britain. Not that I have had much success growing them, but that is my soil I think. They are all American woodlanders.

I had one which grew for a few years. Nothing spectacular and I hoped it would spread. Don't recall seeing it last year though! I spread compost and a layer of soil close to it about this time in 2011.
I'd go out looking for it but its BITTERLY cold outside - and I'm comfy and warm working at my computer.

Nice to know that one is a possible new addition to the garden - thanks for the info Eric.

It does look bad Eric. This time last year we were in the middle of a freak heatwave ::)
(Mind you - any heatwave in Ireland is a freak ;D ;D ;D)

The AGS show has had to be cancelled. Second show in three weeks to be called off.
