Which happens to our families as without even trying, they must be 
absorbing some of what we find on the PBS email list and members.  Since 
joining, my interest in different bulbs, ones I had no idea even 
existed, has come along in leaps and bounds.  And can get really excited 
about them, as they have found.

The Internet has taken the place of nurseries to some extent.  I 
remember my first time of designing a garden when my then husband and I 
bought our first house.  I got a Palmers plant book and chose what I 
wanted to grow and where.  Then we went to the Palmers Nursery and 
bought what I had chosen.

These days nurseries are plant supermarkets and one buys what is 
available.  If you want choice, it is the Internet which provides it.  
So Yayy for the Internet,  PBS and other plant societies.
