> Our feature article in this issue is called "A Gardeners Guide to Crocus"

> easily observed features of the Crocus plant which are useful in
> distinguishing the different species. It also includes some hints for
> successful cultivation. Tony Goode from Norwich, England is the author and
> illustrator.
> There are two excellent articles written by an Italian member, Alberto
> Grossi. One is on Gloriosa lilies and the other on Pancratium. Also
> illustrated by the author.
> Trying to balance the origins of the authors as well as the bulbs, our
> two come from the US, although John Bryan tells us in his "Reminiscences
> working with Jan de Graaff" that he snuck into the States under the French
> quota of the time! Jim Shields, on the other hand, is most definitely a

> trip to South Africa is recorded in his diary type account "Plant Notes
> South Africa, May - June 2004".
> Alan Meerow has written the book reviews for this issue. He has covered
> "Agapanthus for Gardeners" by Hanneke van Dijk, as well as "Amaryllis" by
> Starr Ockenga and "Hippeastrum, The Gardener's Amaryllis" by Veronica M.
> Read. Various other snippets, including a short article by Terry Hatch
> speculating on whether the mycorrhizal fungi associated with Podocarpus
> totara trees are the cause of clivias growing so well underneath them and
> another by the same author whose patience with Brunsvigia was well and
> rewarded, conclude this issue.
> Work is already underway on the next issue which will have a distinctly
> South American flavour. Also in the issue I would like to pay tribute to
> Jack Elliott who sadly passed away this year. If any of you who knew Jack
> would like to contribute a paragraph or two in memory of him, please email
