Re: dry rhizomes

Thank u for your reply Arnold.  I have planted them.  I just expected 
larger better looking plants for the price I paid.  Yes, I did learn 
a lesson.     Mary Geddis

want to order from that person/company again, BUT you may still come 
out o.k., in the long run at least.  Any of the long-term members of 
iris-talk or the old iris-l know that many people have written from 
time to time about discoveries of rhizomes that had been set aside 
and forgotten for weeks or even months.  When those rhizomes were 
planted they still grew and flourished, so there is still hope for 
these, however shriveled they look.  This must be in the archives 
somewhere, though I would not know what subject heading to look 
for.   You say you ordered them over ebay, which I would say is the 
lesson learned:  only order from growers dedicated to iris, growers 
whose names one can find in the AIS Bulletin advertisements or in ads 
in Regional Bulletins or through the links on the AIS webpage.  I do 
hope you will plant the little things you got, though; there's still 
a good chance they may survive and surprise.
