The article by Fran Palmeri (Florida
http://franpalmeri.com/) is top of the shop as it is a superb little article with lovely images of Clematis baldwinii. I was able to derive the front cover image from one of Fran's pictures of a young flower of Clematis baldwinii, see below.There are a number of other particularly good contributions with this year lots of interesting items about various particular clematis species; lots on growing from seed, and a number of excellent general 'clematis in the garden' articles. Once again, Prof. Fred. Essig very kindly indeed allowed me to reproduce one of his excellent earlier pieces of work. A lot of good articles and I am lucky to have this type of material to deal with. Overall, I hope, a reasonable balance.
I would like to thank everyone who contributed in whatever way,  I really do appreciate it very much. Thank You!

The 2010 Journal is now in the final stages of preparation and should be published shortly. It will be posted first class in the UK and by Air Mail to overseas members, so it should get to people quickly. I hope everyone enoys it, of course. It will be my 4th edition. Time flies!

The Journal will be printed and depatched to all Members on 16th and 17th December. I very much hope everyone enjoys it! I am hopeful you will, as it is packed with Clematis articles of all kinds, from cover to cover.

My own copy landed on the mat this morning, so the majority should be delivered tomorrow, I would guess. I hope everyone enjoys the Chistmas reading and finds something of interest.
