  • SABG members who have an email address (the great majority) should have received Bulletin 48/1, the first of a planned series of SABG Bulletins, which are intended to be smaller and more frequent than the Newsletters, and thus to provide more timely news and certain information for members only, such as members’ contact details, which is not appropriate to appear on the web-site. However, suitably edited versions will appear here. [30 March 2023]
  • An SABG member has brought my attention to Jacques Amand (, which is a UK retail and wholesale supplier of a very wide range of bulbs, including many South African species. I have added them to our Links page [29 March 2023]

Although bulbs (defined more broadly to include all geophytes) are the focus, we recognize that people who grow them probably grow other things too and will be talking about them from time to time.
