Broom Universe 99 - Jiri Balatka Collection

Dear Friends,

I try to present the ever first fully documented conifer collection of 1800. But what a collection?

The base is a very rare and unique czech collection with an international cream sauce, and a characteristic american pie. I like this kind of collecting as turning to the own roots, the friends in Europe and an overseas outlook.

I hope you all will enjoy this excursion.

All photos are made by Jiri Balatka.

Zsolt and Jiri

    Dear Will,
    Thanks and you are right, but it must be made only once. :)

    I have space enough for american conifer collections on my site. The first was the Harper Collection, photographed by Dax. I kindly accept your beautiful collection, then others from the west side. Your kind neighbours, Bob Fincham and Larry Stanley's backyard are willing to be documented anytime, hopely...
    I also learned a lot by prepearing Index Plantarums, discovered never heard selections, and these are documentations of our age, too. I think this way is a bit more than gardening only. Maybe a conifering history chapter.
