Year by year the taste for the real treasures of the garden is improving, whilst values are more correctly estimated. Already experts are turning their attention to Magnolias as a first choice. A few men always lead and the rest follow, so that, unless I am muc mistaken we shall soon see a big move in the planting of Magnolias throughout our islands...My thanks are due to Me Dendy for his help with an up-to-date key to the Genus Magnolia, to Prof. Wright Smith of Edinburgh for his generous assistance regarding the new Asiatic species, and to Mr George Forrest, the famous traveller and plant collector, for his article on the new Magnolias of Western China, Tibet and the Burmese frontier.
