We are touched and very grateful for the kind contribution from Peter Watts’ family to MPG to support a full bursary. Melvyn Jope was instrumental in helping in the distribution of Peter’s extensive plant collection and also distribution and sale of books from his comprehensive library. Peter’s family were very supportive of the suggestion that from the proceeds an MPG bursary contribution might be a good way to honour Peter’s memory. Peter was a keen and very knowledgeable horticulturist with, among other plants, a special interest in cyclamen and bulbous plants. He was well known as the person that found Crocus wattiorum in its natural environment in Tahtali Dagi Turkey. The picture is a pale yellow form of Sternbergia lutea from his collection.
