Re: Bulb: Reticulata irises

Hi Paul,
What a large and lovely collection of reticulatas you have.I myself have
Joyce, Harmony, J.S.Digit and one called George. I also have hist.Katherine
Hodgkinson and Major. My retics have just about finished blooming and I will
be planting them out into the garden, where I find they multiply rapidly.
If you have any spare retics for perhaps sale? or would like to trade, I
would be very interested. If not and I do understand that while they do
increase well, we never have enough for ourselves <grin>, as they are so
lovely, would you be able to tell me where you purchased all those
I have mine planted in pots and underneath a few weeping sliver birches
where they look very cute and cheery with my narcissus bulbs. I  too love my
daffodils/narcissus and the odd cyclamen like Jan.They make spring so cheery
on a cold wet day. I also have a lot of Dutch iris bulbs, plenty of Big or
is it Blue River, Prof .Blauw,if you would like any ,send me a note. I have
given away masses this year and would be happy to lessen their numbers even
Regards, Wendy...wendon@dcsi.net.au.zone 8,I think.
