Bromeliads Under The Mango Tree

pinkbromsJuly 19, 2009

Hi Guys

I have just received a copy of this new release book put together by Lynn Hudson, 64 pages, approx. 200 x 150 in size, written by John Catlan, titled 'Bromeliads Under The Mango Tree'.

This book is a compilation of a lot of articles written by John over the years of his thoughts & observations on growing bromeliads that have been printed in various Journals & has now been excellently produced into one book, it is an absolute must have, it answers a lot of your questions on watering, potting mix, light requirements, seed growing & so much more.

Keep an eye out for this one, well priced, worth having.

Hi PB,
Thanks for that, do you know who the contact is in Australia to get hold of the books ? Our NZ society members would no doubt be very interested if we could get some shipped over ASAP to distribute ?
Cheers
Graeme

Hi Guys

The book will be available through your local society (Aus.) @ I believe around $15.00 Aus. RRP.
Bulk & overseas orders direct from Lynn Hudson e-mail: lynnie@ledanet.com.au
Graeme I'm sure Peter W. will definately get some over for us but give him a nudge for me anyway, I'm sure I have seen some of John's BUTMT articles in our N.Z Journal & now having them all in one book makes for a brilliant read.

Oh, and I was hoping to see lots of photos of your bromeliads under your mango tree, darn!

Funny you say that Catkim, I was also eagerly hoping for a feast of the eyes under the mango tree!

I was going to photograph some broms under my mango tree but it would be more dissappointing than no photo at all!

John has spoken at our Brom society meetings in Brisbane on a number of occasions, his talks are informative and he is a nice bloke to boot.

I'll pick that book up next time I see it.

I can't say that it's all that great to have bromeliads under a mango tree. I spent a lot of time last winter cleaning rotting mango inflorescences and aborted fruit out of the few broms that I have under my neighbor's very expansive mango tree. But it gets better, now I have to do the "mango patrol" every morning to see if any mangoes have fallen and smashed into my broms.

I was thinking the same thing, Nick. That wouldn't be my first choice for a growing location, but it does make a nice book title.
