INDEX should be here!
Oh dear -- we still have to get this issue's full index posted here and thus make it more accessible to you because its innards will be "visible" to our Search engine.
Volunteers have helped with that... when you read this issue, you could send us a list of words or phrases "this is why I would look for this issue." We post them here, making it easier for the next gardener to find it.
Here's a start: This issue expands our library of information about:
iris borers. If iris borer control is why you're here, this issue will be helpful, as will Allowed Iris into the kitchen! which includes an iris borer cross reference.
native plant sources (if that's why you're here and you're thinking about digging from the wild, don't miss Growing Concerns 60)
