News from The American Daffodil Society

Welcome to another news brief from The American Daffodil Society (ADS). You may have received an email earlier this week because you have purchased past publications of the RHS Yearbook from the ADS.

Hurricane Gordon has traveled up into the central Midwest at this writing. We were ready for rain, the storm is not only leaving us with plenty of rain it is also ushering in the close of summer. We went from the lower 90s into the middle 60s overnight. Fall is definitely about here.

Fall means that the RHS Yearbook should be about ready to go to press. Mike Grant, the Contributing Editor for Specialist Publications, wrote me last Monday to say he expected the RHS Yearbook for 2018 to go to print near the end of September. He has high expectations they will ship shortly thereafter.

2018 RHS YearbookThe past procedure for distribution of the RHS Yearbook has been to ship the publication, with an invoice, to individuals on a RHS Yearbook pre-order list. To bring this process into line with other products sold and distributed by the ADS, I have set up a button on the ADS Webstore publications page where you may Pre-Order a copy of the RHS Yearbook.

If you are still interested in receiving the 2018 RHS Yearbook, please click on this “2018 Pre-Order RHS Yearbook link” to reserve your copy. The process for payment and distribution will be the same as other products ordered from the ADS Webstore.

Each year we plan to contact the ADS membership to let them know when the new RHS Yearbook is available for distribution.  I’m hoping this will encourage other members to order a copy also. Please let your colleagues and friends know about the availability of this excellent publication so they can pre-order their own copy.

Thank you for your patience as we work to improve and strengthen the American Daffodil Society.

    Official front cover to the 2018 RHS Yearbook

    I’ve just received word from the editor that the 2018 RHS Yearbook has gone to print. They hope to ship these out to me by the end of the month. Sorry for the delay. They were ahead of schedule a couple of months ago. I don’t think I will have them in time for the Fall Forum in Cincinnati. Should they come in I will bring them for those who ordered them.

    They’re here! ! ! I stopped everything and went to the post office. Hopefully, my post office (which is a step below Sam Drucker’s in Hooterville) will get them sent today or tomorrow. You should begin to find them in your mail in just a few days.

    I still have many left. It’s not too late to order a copy. The old system wasn’t working. I still have 6 or 8 who haven’t paid for their 2017 copy. I had to go to a pre-pay system. I do know who generally orders a copy and have enough for all who normally want a copy.

    Our own Mary Lou Gripshover has a report on the ADS 2017 Fall Flower Show. And, Harold Koopowitz has a nice article on growing Fall Blooming Daffodils. He even hints at this being in a forthcoming book. Yeah.
