Dear Clematarians,
 
It is with permission of Steve, BCS website manager, that I put the next information at this Forum.
 
This is a general message about my privately published book on Clematis Cultivar Group Classification. This book can only be obtained from me personally. There is no wholesale or retail price.
 
Title: Clematis Cultivar Group Classification with Identifying Key and Diagrams.
Language: English.
Cover: hard cover, bound.
Number of pages: 202 pages in full colour.
Number of illustrations: 200+ illustrations.
Size: A4 size.
Contents: This book contains a vast overview of my Clematis Cultivar Group Classification which I developed over the years. The Cultivar Groups are fully described including Cultivar Group Standards and illustrations.
The relation between the Cultivar Groups are explained by text and by diagrams, something never done before in Clematis and probably also not for any other cultivated genus. The Key to identify the Cultivar Group is also unique. Solutions are also suggested for several cultivar nomenclature problems.
Extra: There is an extra inlay of Diagram No 2 on A3 size, so the Diagram can be consulted while reading the text.
 
Price: 110 Euro. This price includes one copy and worldwide postage.
 
How to order: you need to do 2 things;
1. Pay 110 Euro to my PayPal account using the email address
wimsnoeijer@zonnet.nl
2. Send me an email message with full name and post address.
 
Please contact me first before paying any money for those who has a post address in The Netherlands.
 
You can also obtain a copy at the following dates, which will save you a considerable amount of money:
2009, 28 March, AGM of the British Clematis Society, Pershore, United Kingdom. 2009, 25 April, Gesellschaft der Staudenfreunde, Regionalgruppe Dortmund, Germany.
2009, 24 & 25 July, Agapanthus Days at Castle Rosendael near Arnhem, The Netherlands.

Hallo  Wim
 
Congratulations with the book. Very nice to hear and I hope you get luck with the sale.
How many plants do you discuss. Can you show a page of it ?

Dear Clematarians,
 
I had some inquiries about obtaining my book and I can write now that I will join the "Open afternoon Day" at NCCPG Montana Group, in the UK, at May 2nd 2009, see for more information http://www.clematismontana.co.uk/events_09.html
 
So, if you are interested to buy a copy and save p&p you can obtain a copy at Val's place that afternoon. For joining this open day you need to sign in, see website.
 
Thank you.
 
With the request from Roelie I can write that some pages have only pictures, some pages have boring references lists, and most pages are more or less in between.
 
Best wishes from Holland,
 
Wim

Hi Wim,
I had a lovely Easter I got your book !
It was a complete surprise as I had not been able to attend the BCS meeting. I think Bernard and my husband must have had a plot.
I look forward to digesting all your obsevations.
