Rachel Saunders

Rachel Saunders and her husband Rod Saunders were co-owners of Silverhill Seeds, a company specializing in South African seeds and bulbs and also selling books. Throughout much of the year they traveled around South Africa collecting seeds. In addition Rachel was the treasurer of the Indigenous Bulb Association of South Africa and edited their annual Bulletin for a number of years. She provided a lot of helpful information to the PBS list for many years and also contributed photos to the wiki. She and her husband planned to write a book on South African Gladiolus species and supplied photographs of some of the more elusive species as they located them in the wild. Well loved, Rachel corresponded with many of Silverhill's customers from around the world, answering questions and providing guidance. While out collecting February 2018 it seems they were murdered by terrorists.
