Mark, Trond, Jenny

You were all on the mailing list for the latest issue so your copy should be crawling towards you. I would like to say I understand why some people get their's quickly and others take so long but I can't. It baffles me why some people have to wait so long.

Very best

Glad to hear I'm on the list! The previous issues have come rather quickly so it's therefore I am anxious :-\

Thanks for checking, Malcolm. January's always the time when I start to wonder if I've renewed my membership while waiting for the journal. Good to know that it's on the way!

Being forgetful of renewing was a big incentive in my taking out Life membership :rolleyes:
Apart from the fact that I saw it as a nice "farewell" present to myself when I left the USA to return to live in Australia - on a much reduced wage ;D

That's a good suggestion, Fermi. If the Euro hasn't disappeared down the plug hole by the end of the year, perhaps I'll treat myself to life membership.

New issue of the Quarterly (Spring 2012) has been dispatched to members from Allen Press in Kansas. Managed to get the whole thing completed, layouts, proofreading, color proofing etc before we set off for the Annual Meeting in Everett - so it's on its way!!

We just got back to the UK on Saturday evening after the Annual Meeting and then another week with presentations in Vancouver and Calgary - thanks to all those involved with all of that - great fun. And if you're expecting a reply to an email all I can say is that I'm working my way through a stack - should be up to date by beginning of next week.

Deadline for next issue is May 1st but if you have to have something in it would be good if you get in touch before then.

Spring 2012 issue: I'd like to incorporate into Panayoti's 'Seven Axioms' these: 1: Defendable borders! -perhaps something Panayoti doesn't think too much about, entire yard up in rock gardens and all but for many of us its useful. A long rectangle is more difficult to defend against crawling weeds than is a circle. Make considered use of edging materials, walls, slabs, and stone mulch! 2: Permanence and stability! -don't be planting things that need constant division or other muddling. Things can take quickly in "new" -cultivated conditions but I find the best, eventually, for rock plants are settled conditions. Crevice gardeners heed especially! This is not unlike Panayoti's #6 and once it is undertaken one need never know where the bulbs are planted. In fact, they need not even be marked.
