Anyone else get this? (note a few words are missing, they were done as

Dear Heronswood Customer:
to announce Heronswood's relocation from western Washington State to new
headquarters at Fordhook Farm in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. In addition to 60
acres of space for research gardens here in southeastern PA, we have 50
acres of research and production in central PA in the eastern Appalachian
Mountains, as well as another 30 acres on the southern tip of Delaware, a
few miles from the Atlantic Ocean and the Maryland and Virginia borders.
This excellent spread of growing and testing facilities over 3 hardiness
zones (5,6 and 7) will enable us to upgrade our current offers, to breed new
plants, and to select from the many that we collect around the world those
best suited to your garden.
in size and diversity of locations, we shall be operating closer to our
customers in the Northeastern and Mid-western US.These broad mid-Atlantic
production sites are situated perfectly to serve our customers in the
Southeast as well. Finally, we shall continue to serve with no change-except
the display gardens and Open Days in Kingston-our many valued customers in
the Pacific Northwest, as well as our friends on the west coast and in the
herbaceous perennials more than we have done previously. Under the direction
of Grace Romero, who has over 25 years experience breeding and collecting
plants, the Heronswood team will vigorously develop new lines of hellebore
as well as many other perennial classes. Plant exploration will be done by a
constellation of collectors located in the US, Central America and the UK.
Indeed, we are expanding and invigorating all phases of Heronswood's
horticultural and botanical operations.
we shall both produce a new edition of the Heronswood Catalog this fall
(2006), featuring over 300 fully illustrated and unique cultivars, and
launch an enhanced website that will have over 500-all in excellent supply
and top condition. In addition, we shall improve the shipping of our plants
by increasing their size, as well as improving the containers in which we
will enclose them for the upcoming 2007 season.
we shall be open to the public at Heronswood's new location at Fordhook Farm
in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, on a seasonal bi-monthly basis, or about 5 Open
House weekends per year, beginning fall of 2006. In due time, we shall be
open by appointment as well. Already, we have tested Heronswood plants here
for 5 years. Grace Romero created a large, beautiful full sun experimental
perennial garden, dubbed 'The Happiness Garden'. The season for our Open
House tours of the six acres of gardens will be slightly different from
Washington State due to the changes in the climate. We shall offer garden
tours and plant sales, as well as lectures and seminars. Check back here
later this summer for upcoming dates.
for visiting our website today. We look forward to serving you.
P.S. on Friday and Saturday, July 14 and 15, 10:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. and
10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. respectively, for our debut Hydrangea Open at
Fordhook Farm. We'll have garden tours, rare plants, a special hydrangea
display and sale, and free gifts and refreshments.
