Mt Edgcumbe update

I find it hard to regard a day sat at a computer screen as a good or productive day but I have managed to add four new sections of the collection today, while the wind whistled and the rain came and went outside.

I have added one further American area, 1K; two Australia and New Zealand areas, 4E and 4F; and one China and Japan area, 3C. I have added notes to 4E and 4F but not the other two so far.

I have now posted 970 images of 498 individual plants. That’s out of around 1600 plants in the collection. I still have some way to go!

I have now added Areas H, N and M. Some plants are missing because I do not have photos yet. I think I am now at 262 plants illustrated out of 1606 in the collection. There are currently 865 taxa in the collection that are planted in the park, a few more being grown on in pots to a size suitable for planting.
