I have spoken to Frances Love who registered the sibirica Emma Ripeka and 
she says that she has sent fans to Eddie Johns, and on speaking to Eddie 
he says that he has had enquiries from Mark Cook.

For general information it is doubtful if anybody has sent pieces of Emma 
Ripeka to the U.S. yet. Eddie Johns has a small supply and is willing and 
able to export - at a price of course and subject to Ag. requirements in 
New Zealand and U.S. The U.S. requirements are an Import Permit for plant 
imports into U.S. from dept of Ag.

The initial step will be expensive to implement and may best be 
negotiated through one of the bigger commercial gardens in U.S.

Eddie Johns may be contacted directly by phone or fax at 06 324 8490
or indirectly by e-mail through Ewen Paynter, ewen@manawatu.gen.nz or by 
snail mail at O'tara Birch Gardens, P.O. Box 81, Rongotea 5454, New 

Emma Ripeka won the Australasian Dykes Medal in 1995.
