  1. Certainly one of the small flowered evergreen Japanese azaleas, 'Hino Crimson' is probably the commonest deep red but there are many others. Parentage is - to say the least - complicated so it's best not to give a species name.
  2. Very surprised at how quickly this one has sold. Uploaded Saturday, straight through QC (5* QC rank), on sale Sunday, sold today (Monday). All for a reasonable mid $$ price. It's definitely paid for the bulbs 😀 Country: Worldwide ; Usage: Commercial electronic ; Media: Website, app and social media ; Start: 10-May-2021 ; End: 10-May-2026 ; Additional Details: Websites, apps, social media and blogs (excludes advertising). Worldwide for 5 years.
  3. Sorry Jill - it's not one I know though I'll agree that the leaves and berries do look Viburnum like.
  4. I've never been to Kew so I'm not aware of their terms and conditions for entry. Does their website give any information? A lot of gardens with paid entry do set conditions on any commercial photography and do chase agencies and photographers to take down images. The National Trust is notorious for this. Although Alamy have plenty of photos taken at Kew I personally wouldn't advertise the fact that individual flower or plant portraits were taken there or in any paid entry garden. They could, after all, be taken anywhere. In my own case the vast majority of my own images have been taken i
  5. Hello competitor 😀 Just to reassure you, there is a good market for well shot images of correctly labelled botanical and horticultural subjects. Mine sell to a wide variety of garden magazines = both UK and worldwide, gardening sections of newspapers, nurseries, for calendars, for packaging, for websites, for books. However, the market can be seasonal. For example spring bulb shots tend to sell in spring when the subjects are coming up to flower and again in late summer / early autumn when they are on sale. You'll often have a wait of a year or even more before there is interes
  6. A bit below average. 19 sales for $459 gross / $214 nett. Zooms holding up well but won't know the final figures till Monday.
  7. Yes, I don't think 'spring salad' is quite appropriate. I wouldn't like to eat any of that lot - especially the hedgehog holly. Brings new meaning to prickly. I still carry the scars. As far as a gardening term there is always the classic 'shrubbery' but I'd just call it an evergreen planting combination.
  8. I'll give it a go: Bottom left winter heather, Erica carnea. Can't tell you the variety, there are a good few pink ones including the species. This also occurs middle top, Centre left is one of the red flowering evergreen azaleas, possible 'Hinode Giri' Top centre is the silver hedgehog holly, Ilex aquifolium 'Ferox Argentea' Top left I'm not sure of.
  9. First $$$ (just over) sale of the year: Lady's mantle, Alchemilla mollis, on a white background - one of my lockdown studio shots. Country: Ireland ; Usage: Editorial ; Media: Museum display (single use) ; Print run: Single use only ; Start: 26-April-2021 ; End: 26-April-2031 ; Additional Details: For the life of the panels; Outdoor interpretation panels - single use
  10. Thanks Steve. It was through Alamy but they've used it before so that may account for the lack of Alamy credit.
  11. I'm a keen gardener as well as an ecologist by original training. It's something I thoroughly enjoy - well, apart from the getting into ridiculous positions to get the best shot. Thank goodness for fully articulating screens and live view shooting.
