Group orders: How about Hoog & Dix?

If you want to tackle a vendor where group orders really matter, how about 
organizing one for Hoog & Dix in Holland?  We would need a current price 
list for all interested parties (including me).  Arnold T. organized one or 
two of these a few years ago, and it's a lot of work.  You can ask Arnold.

Hoog & Dix are more or less the modern day equivalent of the old Van 
Tubergen Zwanenberg nursery in the Netherlands.  H & D supply small 
wholesale orders for a lot of unusual and hard to find bulbs.  Moreover 
they have a reputation for shipping correctly labeled bulbs!  The last time 
I ordered, the minimum order was about 500 Dutch Guilders (value of the 
bulbs), which is probably about 250 euros and maybe 260 dollars, more or 
less.  Shipping and phytos are extra.

Anyway, if there were going to be a group order to Hoog & Dix, I'd like to 
get a copy of their list and put in a few things for myself.
