Permission will generally be granted for academic and similar purposes and higher quality images may be available. Please ask.


Continuing piracy of my photographs, particularly by internet auction sellers has made it necessary to impose the following strict conditions:

Anyone wanting to use any of the photos contained in this site must ask permission before copying them.

Nurseries and other commercial users are expressly forbidden to use these photographs except where I have granted permission and I am satisfied that the plants offered are true to name. In other cases I shall require that a specimen of each cultivar is sent to me so that I can check the authenticity of that plant. Only after the identity has been validated will I grant permission to use the photograph or other material.

Commercial Webdesigners and Internet Auction Sellers must take note that a fee (normally £40 per photograph) will be charged for the use of my material. This fee will be subject to a penalty surcharge of 500% if material is discovered to have been used without permission. This means that it will cost you £40 + £200 penalty surcharge if you steal one of my photographs to illustrate an item for sale on eBay or similar internet site. The penalty surcharge will be donated to charity. Such use of my photograph or text shall constitute acceptance of these conditions and liability to pay these charges.

All requests for permission to use text or photographs can be made using the Contact Me page.
