    Hello Rimmer,
    All but the last cultivar, Verger, can be found with photos in DaffSeek (http://daffseek.org/).
    Even though these have photos, if anyone has additional photos, please send them to my personal email address for inclusion in DaffSeek.
    Many Thanks,
    Nancy

    Hi Rimmer
    I still grow Louise de Coligny and Green Island. I love Louise de c. for it’s beautiful perfume – like violets. I am sending a pic separately. Cannot locate the pic of Green Island but when I do I’ll send it on.

    Thank you all for your prompt responses to my inquiry, one of my first to the list, though i have been mostly a lurker for the past 2 years. I am typically quiet but have met several of you at John Reeds in the past.
    I should have added to my inquiry that my request for photos is for a friend, Scott Kunst of Old House Gardens. Scott is seeking photos of the listed cultivators and is willing to trade bulbs or some other equitable exchange to be able to use closeup photos in his work. Scott’s email is carbon copied to this post.
    Thank you very much. I too am a grower and collector of historic varieties and have met several friends on daffnet over the years

    Rimmer and Scott,
    Have you checked Daffseek for photos of the cultivars you are interested in obtaining photos of? I would be surprised if some of them did not have photos. The photos also indicate the photographer’s name, so you would know who to contact for permission to use them commercially.
    That is the correct approach, isn’t it, Ben and Nancy? Go to the original photographer rather than to you?
