Bill the Bulb Baron

Wow. I have quite a number of his Narcissus that I’ve ordered over the years, some of which are still blooming or about to bloom. Although I never met him in person, we once many years ago did a joint order of Narcissus and some other bulbs from Australia (I think from Will Ashburner) because he recognized several old warm-climate heirloom varieties among Will’s list that he hadn’t be able to find here in the States. He was a very nice person even over the Internet. How sad that he passed at such a relatively young age. Does anyone know if his employees will be able to continue running his nursery?
