Susan Tindall of Timpany Nurseries Remembers Fred Nutty
My memory of Fred is appearing at the Alpine Garden Show in Dublin, always with a twinkle in his eye, and asking had I remember to take along the plants he had ordered from my catalogue. As soon as he received the latest catalogue he would be on the telephone saying what he would like, almost always bulbs, bulbs that were difficult to find any elsewhere and I would have only had a few to offer, after he had give me his order, I would wait for him to say ‘Have you any Tecophilaea’ (the lovely Chilean Blue crocus) hidden away you can let me have, the answer was not always ‘Yes’. I will miss you at this year’s Alpine Garden Show in Dublin Fred.
