<<Foster & Gallagher, and was quite surprised to see Stark Bros.>>

F & G bought Stark Bros. about 5 years ago.  They own several other Hort
companies as well.  Breck's isn't bad, Springhill has some good roses that are
grown by Week's in S. CA. and Michigan Bulb is a lot better than it was 5
years back.  Stark Bros. like SpringHill is/was an old family company.  In
fact SpringHill is the oldest Horticultural Catalogue in the US.  It was
bought by F & G about 15 years ago, but the same family is involved same with
Stark Bros.
