This is  a quick posting to assure anyone who has sent in an order for seed to be patient - especially overseas members who have payed with PayPal. Glenis who takes the order for seed does not return from her holiday until 14th March and until then the seed orders will most likely not get processed.
 
I know at this moment in time no seed orders have been dealt with and the society can only offer its apologies for the delay.
 
Those members who have paid with PayPal can be assured your order will get processed as soon as the situation allows.
 
Regards
 
Steve

Dear Directors of British Clematis Society


I received the 2008 Clematis seeds.  Thank you very much. 
I was very excited to find a lot of precious seeds in the envelope.  I was so happy to receive them and deeply thank you for sending them to me.
I will grow them with great care with here in Japan.  I hope to report to you how they grow through the bulletin board.

With my gratitude, I would like to send you some seeds from Japan to add to the next seed distribution. 

Steve, Thank you kindly for answering my various questions.  I hope that we continue to have good relations. 

I wish all of you great happiness.

Hi.Steve
I have been in Canada for the last two weeks , in to Toronto area the snow is still thick in places , howevere the forecast is better and it should thaw soon .
I hhave hunted for native seeds , but no one seem to know any thing about them , I suppose I should have made some conracts before I came over .
Where I am sitting the snow is pilled up at the side of the road , but the sun is shining. Must read up on the the Canadian types of clematis for my next visit or have my Son send some over for me
Best Wishes     Ron.C                     Excuse speling mistakes my spell cheker is looking after the baby

Hi Ron,
 
I hope your trip is still going well and you are enjoying the snow.
Rain and wind over here at the moment (so nothing new there then).
 
I think the native clematis for Canada is C.virginiana (close relative of our own C.vitalba).
 
If you are lucky you might even come accross C.occidentalis var. occidentalis or even C.occidentalis var. grosserata depending on where you happen to be.
 
Best regards
 
Steve

It's possible they were delayed due to overseas shipping, but I still haven't received my seed order this year.  I think last year I received it in mid-February.  Is there somewhere I could go on this site to contact someone who might know the status of my order?

The BCS seed distribution was somewhat delayed this year but Glenis Dyer has now shipped all seed orders including overseas, this was by Air Mail. I trust that all will be delivered ok in the next few days.
If anyone has a problem, I suggest they email Glenis: glenisdyer@btinternet.com

Hi Mike,
 
I have sent you an email on the subject as your seed has been sent but due to USA law has to go through a number of hoops (so to speak) to get to you.
 
Best regards

Steve, I didn't receive your email (my ISP blocks many senders, unfortunately!), but I've seen this and will eagerly await my stash!

Lovely plant C. ladakhiana, Mariko, the seedlings come on very fast and the plants start flowering before you know it. If you get a floriferous specimen I would love a cutting! On second thoughts, perhaps I should just get some seed and raise some, again! They germinate easily and quickly and the foliage etc is beautiful on the eye.
