No surplus sale this year

Hello all,

Having received a couple of inquiries in the past few days, I thought 
I would announce that I won't be holding a surplus bulb sale this 
year. I'm working long hours and also trying to get my property in 
shape to put on the market, and I just don't have time.

I'm certainly not going to give up growing bulbs, but the 
distribution aspect of it will switch next year to the BX and NARGS 
seed exchange, and after a year or two much of my collection will be 
available from a small Oregon nursery with which I'm trying to share 
everything of which I have more than three bulbs.

Thanks to all of you who have bought bulbs in the past -- I hope they 
have brought you a lot of interest and pleasure, and I love hearing 
that they've done well in far-away gardens. This is the best way to 
avoid being trapped by the "white list": sharing whatever we have 
acquired in the past and making sure it is firmly in cultivation in 
our well-guarded country.
