The BCS Journal 2008 is nearing completion and will be published shortly. The delay has been caused by technical problems at the printer. Although a little late, I hope Members will ultimately find plenty to enjoy, with around 50 articles in 260 pages, and 300+ photos. The Journal is posted to all Members immediately on publication.
You can join the Society online, and thereby enjoy the annual Journal and other clematis-related BCS publications, easily and quickly by clicking the 'Joining' tab at the top of this webpage. The Membership fee is very modest but brings many benefits for the clematis lover.

The aim is to bring together a series of interesting articles from home and overseas. Whether your particular appreciation is in the culture, propagation, breeding, history or even the more technical aspects of Clematis, I hope you will find something here of interest and enjoyment. Even if you join the BCS at this 'late stage', you will still receive a copy of the new Journal in your 'welcome pack'.

The 2008 BCS Journal contents look absolutely cracking and has whetted my appetite already - cant wait to get my hands on the journal!  Last year's edition was outstanding - I continually refer to it, there's so much information for both beginners and specialists alike - something for everyone!
 
Thanks for all your hard work and to all the other contributers and helpers.

We are looking at (according to the publisher (!)) distribution on February 3rd. It could possibly be a little earlier. I will post here, when I have a definite date.

I think the journal is well worth the slight delay, i think joining the BCS is a splendid idea and as you say the cost is minimal, especially when you take into account all the information that members have access to.

The printer thinks the Journal will finally be published later this week (w/b 2/2/09) and I will confirm here. Apologies for the continued delay. We will post the Journal to all members on the day of publishing, and all overseas members will receive their copy by first class air mail post.

My journal arrived yesterday and I echo Digger's comments. It is a superb publication, really well produced and full of loads of interesting information about all types of clematis.
