I would be very pleased to see more "scientific" articles published in PBS organs. But the publication of Herbertia was one of IBS's crippling expenses which led to the organization's demise. Resurrecting something like Herbertia is a nice idea, but not one that should be taken lightly.

 I am definitely
 interested in having such a journal again because
 was a great publication that
 contains both peer reviewed and gardener's
 writing. I enjoyed both types of articles and
 the quality maintained was
 really good.
 There are many ways to cut costs and reduce editor's
 time. We
 have in the recent past discussed
 this topic, and I think the opinions back
 then as they are now is that it will be
 difficult to find contributors and
 to maintain the publication. Although I could be one of
 editors, I cannot do it in my current
 position. If anyone is willing to be
 editor for the journal, let me know.
