Ian, Congratulations on your 1000th log and the RHS award - well deserved.
I was saddened to read you are thinking of ending after 20 years. Whilst you probably do deserve a break, these logs are a very valuable record - for everyone.
In these times of climate change, your logs are going to be a fairly unique record, documenting the changes which may occur over the coming years (with the 20 years of evidence already accumulated to back up the findings) and I would urge you to continue - even if only every other week  :)
I know it's easy for me to say, but - bring on the next 1000 logs  ;)

Ian
Congratulations for incredible 1000 Issues of the Bulb Log. I am sure, thait was not always
easy for you to keep it at this high standard. Let me express my sincerest thanks for this hard 
work you have done for us. I have learned a lot.

1000 is very impressive! I still check your old posts frequently and they are very helpful!

Ian, your bulb log has changed the way I think about my garden and how I now try to grow bulbs. I have learned so much from you. I can't thank enough, and hope that more gardeners find your bulb logs!
Writing once a week is a lot, maybe once a month in the future?

Thank you all for your kind words of appreciation and support.

As I stated the success and longevity of the Bulb Log is as much down to my dear loyal readers who have encouraged me to keep going for so long.

I will make the decision how I continue towards the end of the year when I see how I feel but rest assured I will not disappear all together.

I planted one bulb (or is it corm) Corydalis malkensis in 2006 and it flowered two springs until vole or something ate it. Fortunately it had seeded and couple of years after it's disappearence I found some flowering plants nearby. In 2011 I bought seeds of C.malkensis to have more of them and now ten years later they have increased quite well and there are seedlings popping up. :) Not yet as much as what you have, but I am very happy with them and will sow them in pots as well as letting them seed themselves. :) It is a very good plant and also very cold hardy also here.

Leena,
yes it is an excellent plant and your population will gradually build up - the more plants you have the more seed they will spread.
