Hello Angela, Jim McKenney is, in my opinion, far from boring. He is not niggardly (thank you Tsuh Yang) with his knowledge and may include more information than you feel necessary, but it is always illuminating and usually expands one's vocabulary as well. Some of us that can only grow bulbs by herculean methods due to climatical anomalies or just plain wrong conditions can only enjoy them vicariously and Jim helps make that possible. I see his contributions as a generous sharing of both experience and research and never by fiat. Thank you Jim, and keep on writing. Gary in Hilo, HI where it rains every day, and in the winter it rains all day.
