Mailing List and emails.06/04/2010
The website offers you the opportunity to join the mailing list, which I would encourage you to do; you are equally able to leave the list at any time.
When you click on the subscribe button an automated E-mail will be sent to the email address you have given. You will have to reply to this email confirming your wish to join, before you will be added; this is a standardised computing protocol in such circumstances.
The Email to you asking you to confirm your membership is being intercepted by some peoples anti-phishing software and labelled as suspect; it isn't and you will have to persist.
Many people seem to desist at this stage; there are nearly 100 people who have applied to join the list but not returned the confirmatory email. Their next step is to email the site and ask to join the mailing list. Sorry,I cannot do that. Data protection legislation means that I am not allowed (and physically cannot) either add you to the mailing list or move you from the "enquiries" category to the confirmed list.
The increasing complexity of the website to accomodate on line sales has led my site designers to move the site to "more appropriate" hosters. This has coincided with a sharp increase in email traffic, occasional interruptions in service (invisible to you) and my injured hand. As a result some emails have been lost or gone unanswered, or my replies returned as undeliverable due to my relative computing ignorance.
If you are one of those people who sent an enquiry which seemed rudely to go unacknowledged then I apologise.
I hope to have modest quantities of a reasonable range of varieties available damp packed when the bulbs go dormant in early summer; more accurate timings will be communicated through the mailing list.
