Hello, all. Antoine Hoog has sent me this note to pass on to our bulb lists.

"Paige Woodward just informed me of group orders being discussed from Hoog &
Dix Export. Recent developments here have not yet been discussed in public.
In 2000 I decided to put more time in the acquisition and propagation of new
and less known species. The large-scale handling of the more common bulbs
was never my cup of tea. To concentrate on the rare plants a business-split
of Hoog & Dix was eventually realised. An agreement was made for the name to
remain as it is for a few years. As from 2001 I am no longer active in it.
Hoog & Dix will continue as it did before, some of the plants grown by me
will be available there. Many of the rarer bulbs however, I 'd rather keep
out of the bulb trade and will be marketed via Pacific Rim Native Plants,
Paul Christian and Bulb' Argence. I don't ship directly."


Pacific Rim, Paul Christian and Bulb' Argence each have a different array of
plants from Antoine Hoog.

I am still posting what will be available from my nursery this spring and
fall. I imagine that is also true of Paul Christian and Bulb' Argence.
