Re: Daylilies


Actually, I've considered it.  However, I wrote them a letter about the
daylilies.  I explained that, it wasn't just the daylilies, but the total
lack of gardening info, etc.  I received a reply.

"..... also wanted to let you know that there are going to be some changes
in
our Home section come September, mainly the inclusion of a garden page.
The Home section is now under our Business department but will be
switched to the Features department in the fall. I have heard similar
complaints from other area gardeners about the stories that are
published in our newspaper. I can assure you that will change. The page
will have mainly local content and I will definitely look into
publishing the Master gardening classes you mentioned........."

Can you imagine gardening being part of the Business section?  No wonder!
I already was aware that some change was coming.  Our Hort Ed told me he was
asked to write 4 feature articles for them.  So I am looking forward to some
decent material to go with my morning coffee instead of just political
stuff.
