Colin Whitehead – SRS Treasurer

Colin manages the accounts for the income and expenditure of the society and is a main committee member.

Colin and his wife Dorothy live in Edinburgh where they have a town garden full of Rhododendrons. Colin still grows from seed and a few years back I was privileged to see his garden where he had quite a few big leaved rhododendrons in flower.

Due to Colin’s careful eye on our financial position, the SRS subscriptions have remained constant throughout the last ten years.

Colin also oversees the monies coming into our ‘Education & Exploration Grant Fund’ in which we have set aside a fund to assist horticulturists to attend our conferences or to help fund botanical expeditions where plants can be seen in their natural habitat.
