Hello. Just wondering where abouts the plant of the month is. Will it be available on the forum, it could replace the long hibernation of genus of the month.
I believe that ‘Genus of the Month’ was based on the genus of the ‘Plant of the Month’.

If this great content is being created. It would be good to have it on the forum. It might generate some discussion on the plant featured .
Also it would be possible to look back through past enteries and would be a valuable resource.
Maybe for the new website :grin:

I've restarted the Genus-of-the-Month to match the Society's Plant-of-the-Month. :welb:

I am running very low on material for the Plant of the Month section so if anyone could send me some of the wonderful pics they have taken over the summer together with a bit of info about it I would be very grateful (tu)

It would be great if everyone can support Chris in this venture. He just needs a few sentences and two or three photos, and in fact I see write-ups on here occasionally which would easily qualify for Plant of the month. It need not be very time consuming at all and you can even use photos that you have already got on your PC/Laptop/phone.

Many thanks
Al
