Our very best wishes to Mike on his road to recovery following a serious operation. I am sure we will all look forward to seeing Mike again when he is back on his feet. His wife Ju would like to thank all who have already sent cards and messages of support.

Sorry to hear this news. Please pass on my best wishes to Mike. I well remember the warm welcome I was given when visiting on a lecture trip.

Ian is another who has had the pleasure to have given hospitality by Ju and Mike. When we heard the news we were shocked and can only send our best wishes for Mike's recovery. Mike and Ju are so well known, not only for their famous hospitality and their great plants but they are among the nicest folks in the plant world. Love and best wishes from Ian and I.

We'll be hoping to see you both again as usual at the SRGC Discussion Weekend, if not before!

Hello Mike, from one poor old duffer with artificial knees to another! I have only just heard about your new problem and my immediate thought was,'what a b....r', but knowing you (and Ju) I'm pretty sure you will fight it to a successful conclusion. It must be nice to know that so many friends are rooting for you. All the best, John Good

Just a quick word of thanks to all the messages of support (and cards)from everyone.

I am home now and under strict regime from 'her indoors'
