The Channel Islands National Collections Co-ordinator is Jennifer Seth-Smith, a committee member of the Guernsey group.
There are three National Collections in the Channel Islands. There is a further collection of Jovibarba, which Peter Bastion had been looking after in Jersey. These Jovibarba have been brought over to Guernsey and have been cleaned and re-potted by Chris Chatfield of Guernsey Gardens. He usually has some available at our plant sales and it is hoped that with time, they will regain their National Collection status.
