Congratulations to Doris Joyce

Thursday, 08 September 2011

Doris Joyce has been growing chrysanths for just 3 years, however she has been a quick learner.  Last year she came to our show at Ynyswen and after meeting Dennis Fletcher she said she would like to grow his namesake.  Mike Harvey provided stools and this is Doris's vase at Doncaster Chrysanthemum Society's Show on 3rd Sept 2011.  I can honestly say this is the best vase of DF I have seen. Well done Doris and well done to Barry Hogg for helping Doris get them into the vase and looking so good.  In the picture Doris and Bob Joyce looking pretty pleased with Doris's efforts.

Chrysanthemums : The ultimate e-book

Thursday, 07 April 2011

Written and published

 Ivor Mace & Paul Barlow

To be available as a digital download (pdf format). 

Please register my interest in the Ultimate E-Book

This e-book will be, as far as we know, a global first on the subject of growing chrysanthemums and to our knowledge the first complete chrysanthemum publication for over a decade.

We would like to think it is a groundbreaking publication, hopefully showing the way forward by embracing the opportunities offered by 21st century technology to promote the chrysanthemum to a worldwide and potentially younger audience.

The publication is absolutely brand new and not a reprint, the illustrations are crystal clear and very inspiring, and are sized to allow easy viewing on your computer.

By adopting a totally on-line format it should be possible to keep the book up to date with cultivar and other relevant information, a task normally associated with costly reprints with traditional book formats. We have also eliminated a number of other costs typically associated with hard copy alternatives, this means the e-book will be available to purchase at a very reasonable price. 

If you would like to register an interest in the Ultimate E-Book please click below and we will advise you as soon as the e-book is available to download. 
Kind Regards
Ivor & Paul
