Welcome aboard, Shelley! Where do you hail from?

As Arnold told you, Cottage Gardens changed its name to Stockton Iris 
Gardens about 1993; Jim McWhirter has since died, bless him, but Abe 
Feuerstein is holding down the fort. They don't seem to be advertising 
in the AIS Bulletin, but I understand from one of their last ads, 
whatever year that was, that they send their catalog free to AIS 
members. We've been getting it each year without asking, probably for 
that reason, since we haven't ordered from them yet...Address is
Stockton Iris Gardens, P. O. Box 55195, Stockton, CA 95205. Phone # is 
(209) 462-8106. Don't see a toll-free number. This year they had loads 
of color pictures. Catalog is $3.00 otherwise...

Ah, Moonshine Gardens! We've been members only since 1994, so we weren't 
privileged to get in on their catalogs when Monty Byers was still with 
us, but Larry Doucette sent me his last catalog, 1991, and the Dickey's 
1992 one that was essentially the same. Love them! Monty asked Jack and 
Phyllis Dickey to take over the Garden when he couldn't any more, and 
they've been advertising in the Bulletin: Misty Hill Farms/Moonshine 
Gardens, P. O. Box 1521, Healdsburg, CA  95448. I don't have their 
newest catalog, tho. Physical address last I heard (not in April 
Bulletin) is 5080 West Soda Rock Lane, same zip; phone (707)433-8408. 
Catalog is $2.00, refunded.

Anyone, if this info has changed, let us know!
