As a contributor you have some extra copies coming your way from Bobby Ward as well as your own member's copy. Interesting to know which arrive first.

I received my "extra copies" package today with 4 extra copies; I read all four ;D  Haven't received the member's copy yet.  The quarterly looks great; I really like the unlikely image you selected for the cover, the verticality of the selected Allium species works particularly well with the layout, all personal bias aside ;)  I've only had a chance to skim so far, but want to dig into the article on "Papercrete" troughs.

Glad the cover appeals - its always good to have an image that works (thank you for that) and that's relevant to one of the main articles inside.

You did really well Trond - I don't know who has yet got it in the UK. But it got to you really quickly which is great.

Mine arrived also a couple of days ago, but got added to my growing pile of "no time to read" magazines - glad I read this (as an Allium fan) - have to retrieve it now...

Not yet arrived in North East Scotland but I know how long the SRGC journal can take to travel over the pond in the other direction so patience is needed! :)

I'm a little hard of hearing, Do you say tree-legged, isn't that an improvement?

Looks like UK and Australia to go - yours did really well Dave. Hope to get down to your area this next January - maybe we can meet up.

And I'm glad the Allium article grabbed you Stephen - every time I edit an article about an article from a real enthusiast about almost any group of plants I want to grow them. So I got more Allium seed from the Surplus Seed distribution (as well as rosulate viola seed which I'm trying to germinate after the article about them) .... and anyway, I'm fascinated by what an extreme salad is .... and what's your avatar/picture?

As far as UK is concerned - it seems to take about 3 weeks away from Christmas - so you might just get it before the International Ian & Maggi, and Cliff.
