I noticed in the forwarded message that J L Hudson is a central focus of
this concern about plant regulations. I buy seeds from Hudson, he has some
of the best around. He also is firmly convinced that the introduction of
exotic plant species is NOT A PROBLEM if you read his catalog. I beg to
differ, we're massively transforming the North American landscape at the
moment through the introduction of horticultural cultivars.

How do we limit the damage? Maybe not by having USDA inspectors following
poor Jeff around, but something has to give. I keep getting back to thinking
we have to acknowledge the problem first. Your mileage may vary, as always.
