Shameless self promotion and upcoming events:
-10/10/13 Back from a semi-successful U.K. plant junket. It would have been much more successful if the U.S. Post Office hadn’t delivered a box bound for inspection at the U.S.D.A. station in NY to the U.S.D.A. station in Seattle [?????}, adding days to the journey and causing casualties to some of the plant contents. The ultimate indignity was that they then refused to deliver the box back to the East Coast, post-inspection, because it weighed more than 1 pound!!! Always an adventure. Always nice to see friends abroad and have a bit of plant chat, with a special thanks in order to Great Dixter, whose kindness, as an institution and to a person, is immeasurable. Good things to come in future years from Coen Jansen, Marina Christopher, Cotswold Garden Flowers and others.
-1/22/13 Ed will be one of the speakers at the 18th annual North Hill Smposium in Vermont on June 29.
- 1/1/12 Ed will be lecturing at the Berkshire Botanic Garden on March 10.
- 12/1/11 Ed will be lecturing to the Connecticut Hardy Plant Society on December 14.
