The current issue of The Bulb Garden is in the mail and you may have 
received your copy already. If you are a member and do not receive it in 
a timely fashion, please write Arnold Trachtenberg 
( for assistance.

This issue has some great articles. Jane McGary brings us the news that 
many of the scillas have been reclassified. Judy Glattstein shows us how 
bulbs can be combined in beds with perennials and annuals. Marguerite 
English daydreams the winter away in her garden room, and Robin Hansen 
tells us the saga of building her greenhouses. Finally, the nutritional 
needs of bulbs are discussed by biochemist Jim Shields.

This is my first issue as co-editor with Jennifer Hildebrand, who led me 
gently through the process. I also had lots of help from former editor 
Marguerite English and from President Jane McGary. And, of course, there 
the authors who came through with their well-written articles. My thanks 
to all of you.

Now is the time to start thinking about the next issue. If you have an 
idea about a topic--a book review, humor, memoir, biography, tales of 
success or disaster, portrait of a species, anything related to 
bulbs--please contact me at
