Hi all,

At the risk of annoying any of you who are dreading Christmas, I would like once again to remind you that I subscribe to John Bryan's monthly newsletter and it makes a very nice gift to give another fellow gardener.

There are always little historical tidbits, ruminations on his tour of (garden) duty in UK and on the continent of Europe, what to do in the garden this month, notes on roses, lawns, shrubs, annuals, perennials, trees, and bulbs of course. Some notes on tours he is putting together and a book review or two.

In the Sept issue was a sentence on the origin of the name wallflower: commonly called wallflowers because they were frequently seen growing on [out of] walls in England.

If it weren't for this newsletter, I would forget half of what I need to do each month.

Annual subscription is $30 and well worth every dollar. In addition, he will answer any and all calls and/or emails with questions about plants/bulbs/gardening etc. I often call and email him about tree problems, how to propagate particular plants, whether to discard certain plants or try and keep them over, and so on. He is always most polite and always has the answer. Excellent resource.

 Full value for one's money, imo. What other gift can you give a fellow gardener that will last 12 months? Please don't clog the Forum, email John privately at: JohnBryan@worldnet.att.net
