RE: Heronswood


Well, I am just sickened.  Heronswood is - was - a magical place.  It
was the highlight of our trip to the Northwest several years ago and I
can't imagine it's demise.  I hope the county or some private interests
buy the property and maintain it as a botanical garden.  What Hinckley
created should not be lost.  What a tragedy.  But then, when the sale to
Burpee was announced I'm sure a lot of people, as I did, thought
ultimately no good could come of the change.

From another list- Burpee, which bought the wonderful Heronswood
Nursery, 
has closed it without warning. While I couldn't grow a lot of plants
that 
they sold due to my horribly hot climate, I was fascinated by their
gardens 
and by their catalog.
