During the Covid 19 shutdown members of the group, starting with the chairman, have been sending pictures to us for distribution to our members. We have accumulated a number of these so are publishing here some of the best for April. Hopefully we will have more to follow and will be able to see some of the seasonal changes in the gardens and glasshouses of the Somerset Group members.
As from September the group is meeting on line and the program of talks is as advertised.
Pictures below from various members of the Somerset Group which have been distributed to all as a way of keeping in contact.
The pictures are as follows.
Primula hybrid – from Phil
Acis autumnale and Roscoea cautleyoides old purple – from Pete and Brenda
Biarum rhodpalospadix, and Gladiolus cardinalis from Mike and Wendy
Moltkia X intermedia from Paul and Colin
Crocus speciosus, C.pu;chellum and Cyclamen rolfsianum from Christine
