Subject : [pbs] Visiting the UK & Thailand

> Dear Group,
> I will be visiting family in Germany next month, during which I will also be
> spending some time in the UK, from the 2nd to the 12th of July. Some of the
> places & people I have settled to visit include Kew Gardens, Wisley, Bennets
> Water Gardens, the Hampton Court Flower Show, Mike King of Shropshire
> Sarracenias, Junius des Brisay, David Fenwick of the African Garden and
> Jonathan Hutchinson at Rosemoore Gardens. Doubtless there are hundreds of
> other things & people to visit! What I would like is to hear from you, who
> and what is worthwhile to visit - the top gardens/persons to see/meet before
> you die!
> To narrow down the search (or rather expand it), my interests are in bulbs
> (of which I am particularly fond of the amarylidaceous genera: Scadoxus,
> Haemanthus, Cyrtanthus, Crinum, Hippeastrum (species), Brunsvegia,
> Amaryllis, Clivia and many of the South American genera), Waterlilies and
> Marginal Plants including aquatic Iris (we have an aquatic plant nursery),
> succulents (here I am looking for nurseries specializing in Echeveria and
> their hybrids), Carnivorous Plants (especially Sarracenia and Nepenthes) and
> last, but not least of my passions, tropicals! Here I include Bromeliads,
> Philodendrons, Heliconias, Musa, etc. etc. etc.
> As you can see I have a balanced appetite for a variety of different plants!
> If you grow/collect anything you think I might be interested in, or know of
> someone who does, please give me an email and I will see how I can work it
> into my itinerary.
> The same goes for Germany as above.
> Now, to get to the second part of my subject - Thailand! During July there
> will be an International Waterlily Symposium taking place in Thailand, which
> I will be attending. This includes tours to many Botanical Gardens &
> Nurseries in both Bangkok and Chiang Mai. If you know of any nurseries in
> Thailand specializing in any of the afore mentioned plants, please give me
> an email.
> I look forward to hearing from all of you!
> Kind regards,
