The Indigenous Bulb Society of South Africa (IBSA) is holding a Bulb 
Symposium in August and September 2011.  The Symposium will take place from 
the 28th August to the 2nd September at Goudini Spa (a hot water spring) 
near Worcester (about 100km from Cape Town).  During the first 2 days of the 
Symposium there will be lectures on a wide range of subjects including the 
taxonomy of Freesias by John Manning, Bulbs of the Little Karoo by Dee 
Snijman, botanical art by Vicki Thomas, Amaryllids by Alan Horstmann, 
Iridaceae by Rod Saunders, and many more. There will also be a display table 
showing pots of bulbous and cormous plants grown by IBSA members.  There 
will be a discussion of these plants during the Symposium.  The next 3 days 
will be dedicated to field trips to the surrounding areas to see some of the 
plants discussed, in their natural habitats.  Attendance at the Symposium is 
not restricted to IBSA members.
