Re: BRRRRRRRRR/Hort subscr.

Ads make the circulation go 'round. I know a lot of people don't like to
see too many ads. I think they are fine if they are properly positioned.
FG has a policy of sorts that relegates them to the front and back of
the magazine so that they don't interupt articles. Not sure about
Horticulture. Frankly, I appreciated the ads a lot when I first started
gardening. Especially the classifieds. This is how I found several
smaller suppliers that often carry unique items. Not everyone can afford
the full color, full page ads. I do tend to overlook ads more now than I
did. They are just part of the scenery. But if you think the shelf price
of Horticulture is high, imagine what it would be without any ad

I admit I've revised my opinion a bit after actually reading (as opposed to 
skimming) several of the articles. I enjoyed the articles on Polygonatum and 
atypical roses. Have a few of each on my endless wish list now. I think I 
was put off initially by the many advertisements.

foliage onmy C. montana is crisped. It was still green a week ago. Hope this 
doesn't mean I have to wait 2 years for it to bloom again : (
