Dear Bob,
   Thanks for your note. I have got a stock here, but your posting
assured me in refraining from putting it in my catalog. However last
year August I noticed in Holland a field of one acre with Watsonia
bulbifera, which they intend to put on the market soon. How and who can
prevent them from doing so?

Kind regards
