These are the beds built in the fall of 2010. The last bed built is a bit behind in growth. (nearest the camera) If I plant this late again, I'll plant them just a little deeper and let them adjust themselves. This bed was barely finished when the temps dropped. Rebloomers that had been planted since 2005 were moved to this bed.
I expect the growth to catch up in a few weeks. I plan to keep a photo diary of this group.
Middle bed was planted first and holds a wide variety of TB irises and a few seedlings from around the country. It contains a lot of my collection from the west coast and AU. Two clumps each of Wearing Rubies, Jazz Band & Temple of Time, Also, two clumps of Hello Darkness & Society Page! With space being a bit limited, it was a bit hard to devote the space, but I just couldn't resist. Teaghen & I both want to breed with HD. The cultivars from my garden were planted in clumps. Some old, many new.
Back bed contains my seedlings.
I lost ONE new plant. (middle bed) Don't think it was the fault of the bed.
