« on: June 17, 2017, 04:03:21 PM »
Am dithering about buying a copy as I was told that I might get a free copy as a contributor. Does any other contributor know anything about this ?

What's the difference from the other Meconopsis book, The genus Meconopsis?

Hi Peter 'The Genus Meconopsis'  is all about the species. ' Meconopsis for gardeners' is mostly about the garden cultivars. The two books content are very different.

Have now received my free copy and am spend time in the local University Library studying it.  Found the odd problem (picture of baileyi and Lingholm seed labelled back to front for example) and I still don't know how many species there are as different numbers appear in different chapters but there is so much description of what conditions various species enjoy in the wild that it makes me wonder why we ever succeed with any of them in the UK but also helps think about what might might be the best situations to try with more knowledge. Anyway, super book.
