Ellen and all,
	Been there, killed that.

	It is interesting that a hand me down bulbs via ebay might 
have more viability than a Dutch 'product'. Something to learn with 
this situation.  I find that too often some plants seen to be 
selected for their ability to propagate under nursery conditions and 
not for their vigor as a garden plant. I think we all see tables of 
wonderful new varieties this time of year at the garden centers, then 
bring a new variety into the garden and see it fail utterly.

	I think this gives more credence to our own PBS BX than might 
seem apparent because our donors grow their own. They are not mega 
/mass produced efforts from some distant climate and conditions.

	Happy Mothers' Day to all.		Best	Jim W.
