Anybody got any neat ideas for hanging baskets or potted plants for patio's.  Ideas for flower boxes.  Like you see petunia's in.  Been thinking of making a deep one of rock and putting small holed chicken wire on bottom to deter moles and voles.  Anybody have a solution for these voracious monsters.  They ate and iris rhizome.  Never dreamt they would eat on.  Just purchased it never got to see it bloom.  I am on the warpath.....    Need help......They always bypass the cheap stuff and eat the expensive plants.  I bought a expensive hosta.  Put it with the  inexpensive ones.  Couldn't believe it this spring when I found they had eaten it bypassing other hosta.  Hope everyone is having a good day.  Sure is hot.....     Happy Gardening

  Anner makes some excellent points in the article below, and from my
  point of view, the four full-color bulletins you get every year are well
  worth the price of a AIS membership. All those iris pictures, special
  deals from the online AIS Gift Shop, articles about growing all kinds of
  irises in all kinds of situations... Wow !

  Read on!

  A message from Anner Whitehead, AIS Membership Secretary.


  This is a special message for all Iris fanciers who have never been
  of The American Iris Society.

  Have you been considering joining AIS? Perhaps thinking that it would be 
  distinctly advantageous to position yourself to get some real insider
  about irises and iris nurseries as well as the informed lowdown on iris 
  culture, not to mention meeting other gardeners who share your special 
  fondness for the Rainbow Flower and receiving the fine quarterly AIS 

  Well, the AIS Membership Office wants you to know that for two reasons
  now is absolutely THE BEST TIME to take the plunge. You see, a unique
  highly attractive window of fiscal opportunity has opened. We shall explain:

  First: If your dues are received in the AIS Membership Office before 30 
  September 2001, you will receive the special Bonus which AIS gives those
  join for the very first time at midyear. This is------drum roll------
  membership for the remainder of 2001. Thus by paying for an Annual 
  membership, you would actually get membership for the rest of this year,
  all of 2002. 

  Second: Dues on all Annual AIS memberships (except Youth memberships)
  going up $2.00 on October 1, 2001. BUT if you get your check, money
  order, or 
  charge card info--we take MC and Visa--into the hands of the AIS
  Secretary before 1 October, you can still join at the lesser rate. 

  Of course, if you are ready to commit, the truly cunning move is to sign
  now at the Triennial rate. Triennial rates offer great savings and they
  not going up this year. As a new member joining for three years before
  September you would also get our Bonus, so that your new membership
  would not 
  expire until December 2004.

  Why not examine the full dues schedule on the AIS page and compare the 
  figures yourself? Note that Canadian residents pay at the US rates, not 
  Overseas rates. 


  As you can see, now is a prime time to check out AIS. But remember, this 
  window of opportunity won't be open long, and postmarks don't count! 

  If the AIS Membership Office can answer any questions for you, we invite
  to contact us directly. Now or in future, the welcome mat is always out

  Anner M. Whitehead
