Re: Propagation help

You need two of the same species of plants to produce seed that is true, and that means you have to have them both flower at the same time and have them quarantined to make sure insects don't interfere when you aren't looking. Also you would need to be sure that the parent plants are actually what t...

Re: Death of two senior BCSS members

Very sad news, especially about Gordon.

Gordon was one of the few members who EVERYONE knew - even if they had never met him.

I am sure he will be much missed by friends and family and all those who knew of him.

Condolences to the families concerned.

BEF Pots (Excel Order Form Solution) for MAC users.

In the past several people with MAC computers have said they have had difficulty using the spreadsheet as it was created using Windows software. Apparently if you use the Apple Numbers software you should be able to fill the form in and save it as a PDF, which can then be emailed to Peter as normal....
