Bingo Lloyd.  A huge number of members buy from the "Big 2" and I'am sure 
are excited when the order arrives.  Without proper knowledge about what 
to do for their area, they are downbeat when they rot and die.  They look 
to the National Publication and find nothing, then there are many local 
societies who are no help at all.  Then AIS comes along and raises the 
membership and that's the final straw.  I know the prices are less than 
alot of other plant societies, BUT, they offer more.
