AlpSeed - The Seed Register is the result of a joint venture between "The Alpine Garden" and "Alpine-L, the Electronic Rock Garden" and is designed specifically to enable you to seek out those elusive seeds that have been on your 'wants list' for some time. The Nurseries and Organisations listed in this register are there by the recommendations of your fellow enthusiasts and whilst we are pleased to offer this service, neither The Alpine Garden, nor Alpine-L can enter into any conflict that may arise out of your dealings with them.

This is his third catalogue issued, we are richer for his efforts of growing. His offering of the much neglected plants in Australia, Crocus, are mouth watering and goes on for some four pages. Then we have three pages of Cyclamen, two pages of Fritillaria, followed by a rather impressive Galanthus list, including " Lady Elphinstone"; fully double yellow flowered form from G. nivalis. Found in Cheshire in the 1890's by Sir Graeme Elphinstone. He has some rather nice Narcissus too. Squeezed into the last six pages of his catalogue are many choice little bulbs, all listed under his heading of "Other Buried Treasure"
