Congratulations to MPG member Oron Peri whose image of Crocus korolkowii in its native habitat in Tajikistan has won the North American Rock Garden Society photo contest 2022 in the category ‘In the wild – rock garden plants in nature’ on Instagram. Oron is the owner and operator of the specialist Seeds of Peace nursery in Israel. We look forward to him being the botanical guide on MPG’s November trip in the Peloponnese. Between now and then he will be on a lecture tour in New Zealand.
