You have to understand that just about all amateur plant societies are 
much more social societies then interested in scientific issues or 
problems.  The problems you face with the hosta society isn't anything 
personal and you really shouldn't take it personally.  Every time the 
editor of the daylily journal published one of my scientific based 
articles she ended up getting chewed up one side and down the other 
from those elitist who didn't want anything in the journal that was 
above their reading level.

The other problem you have is that the articles you submit are poorly 
written in English and the editors don't have any idea of how to edit 
them.  If you want, I'll be happy to help you edit the articles into a 
form that is readable for the Hosta Journal.  I'm not a member of the 
hosta society, so the AHS people won't ask me to help edit your 
articles for them.  However, I'll be willing to edit them for you and 
you can then submit them to the journal in a form that is readable to 
the average member.  

The other thing you may consider is to put your articles on your 
personal web site for public viewing.  I put all my major lily and 
daylily articles on my web site for people to read.
