Ian, THANKS for a truely outstanding contribution to gardening and the growing of plants so many of us enjoy.
I'm sure you have inspired far more people than you can imagine and your back catalogue will continue to do so for many years/decades to come.
Whilst I've always tended to garden 'on the wildside', I have also been greatly influenced and encouraged with the way you mix bulbs and other plants into a more natural style. Over the last year or two, I have obtained many more of these plants you grow, to try and replicate some of what you have created.

I look forward to the monthly journals and seeing just how things change in these changing times.
Best whishes for 2023.

Thank you also from me for all the past Bulb Logs. I have learned so much from you, and hope to learn more in the future. Monthly log is a good idea, and it isn't so much work as weekly.  :)

My thanks too Ian, for sharing your observations, experience and insights so generously.  I've learned a lot 8)

Your staying power is also very impressive.  I hope that the Bulb Log in its new form continues to draw plant lovers to the SRGC and Forum.

Thanks so much for all your hard work and inspiration over the years Ian. It's rather fun indexing it - just come across the following run of index entries: Dryden, Kath; Durer, Albrecht; Dwarf conifers. Only in the Bulblog!  ;) New index ready soon.

Thank you for all your lovely comments it means a lot to know that my Bulb Logs have helped, encouraged or inspired others in some way on their gardening journeys.

I only ever wanted to share my enthusiasm and discoveries as I wandered through the world of plants and gardens and perhaps stimulate others into also sharing their experiences online or in print.

I will continue the Bulb Log monthly.

Thanks to Tristan for the New Index    - https://www.srgc.net/documents/bulb%20logs/BulbLogIndex.pdf
