Semidesert conifers 7 Reloaded The Sagalassos Expedition

mesterhazypinetum
November 8, 2011

Dear Friends,

I lost in February 5000 photos as my private photobucket closed. After restoring the documentation I renew the 2010 Sagalassos Expedition chapters. This publishing is a part of the Semidesert Conifers files.

Enjoy it again, please.

Sagalassos Expedition 2010

Hodi Toth, Jozsef (HTJ) is one of the �Semidesert Fathers", who are saving and breeding endangered plants. Not long ago I started a series of �Semidesert Conifers" on the Gardenweb threads. The discoveries of a late October one man expedition up to the Toros Mts. in SW Turkey is following here in some volumes. HTJ enriched the conifer literature not only with more than 30 new cultivars, but he managed to find and collect the majestic silvery grey lebanon cedars around the Irmasan Gecidi Pass (1526 meters), and on 1800 meters of Sagalassos near to an area, where ancient ruins are ruleing the Toros Mts.. I give an outlook to mediterrain evergreen oaks too.

The editing and publishing of this expedition comes from me, photos and plant desciptions are made and written by HTJ.
