Hi Gail...I'd especially enjoy the lecture on roses.  I'd love to know which ones Japanese Beetle are not attracted to if such a rose exists.  Guess I'll have to settle for some investigation on the Internet.

Gail -- this looks like a great series.  I am going to look for something like this in NH.  Hope you can attend.
