Hi Travis
I may be overly biased but as a bulb enthusiast I find my NARGS membership and especially the quarterly and seed exchange invaluable! It was only (only?!!) 12 years ago when I first joined NARGS (New England chapter) bug it was as my first annual meeting where I truly met so many 'like mind's. It's a group which attracts both novice growers as well as the experienced and intellectual. Access to expert knowledge and friendly plant people eager to share becomes one of the greatest benefits. Come be part of the fun!
We're waiting for you!
Warmest regards,

Matt Mattus

Yeah, my iPhone. Typos? Probably.

My "true" Colchicum 'Lilac Wonder' is blooming, and much other bulb activity in the garden (along with all the bulb companions). I also addressed a confusing issue of nomenclature with a few species of Scilla sensu lato. Have a look!

Someone brought bags and bags of free bearded Iris rhizomes, and a few boxes of the quarterly newsletter from the past six or seven years for anyone interested (I got a handful). I am now planning on becoming a paid member. Is anyone else a member of NARGS in one form or another?
