RE: RE HYB: Trial Gardens

With an OK from Robt Pries I am putting together a
form.  Done in Microsoft Word.  It can be printed
and used by the person with the trial garden or
sent Email as long as the recipient has MS Word.
It can then be filled on line and sent back or
printed and sent back hard copy.  By keeping track
of who receives it we can compile a list of public
gardens and private trial gardens.  If someone
needs to have an evaluation of an Iris in a
different local we can recommend the gardens in
the different areas.

Ideas welcome.  I have save the various emails to
be sure to cover as many things as possible.  I am
going to use this as a class project for a data
class I am taking.

In fact, our club site could also  host the
contact list of hybridizers and trial gardens, in
addition to  providing a downloadable evaluation



Kathy, your website is dynamite and it brings up
another "factor" - Public  
Gardens that are maintained by clubs!   
The Iris Club maintains seven Iris Gardens at the
Detroit  Zoo,

These public gardens , like your Zoo, are a common
thing by clubs all over  
the states. St. Louis area has the Missouri
Botanical Garden maintained by  
Greater St. Louis Iris Society, Southview School
by Kirkwood Iris Society,  
Jefferson College by JeffCo Iris Society.  I know
of at least a dozen other  
"public iris beds" that are maintained by groups
and it appears that they would  be 
the likely spots for Trial Garden activities.
There are already many  iris 
members involved in all of these.
I know  a "standardized form" would vary in
meaning among hybridizers,  
iris-buying public and us "Iris Addicts"  but at
least a simple form  that can be 
modified for special needs (like Youth members
reporting back  to the 
hybridizers who generously sent guest irises to a
school, etc. or  Convention Guest 
Iris gardens reporting back to the Guest Iris
Chairman who then  sends to 
hybridizers-know that procedure is RARELY done!)
certainly would be  useful.
Now don't deluge our favorite hybridizers with
requests, but what kind of 
form do they use for evaluating their own
seedlings?  They must all use 
something unless their memory is better than  the
average bear!  
If some kind of coordinated effort on this "Trial
Garden" project were  
launched, then that information could be gathered
without annoying hybridizers  
with requests or wasting time of many people.  The
more "ideas" that are  
bantered around here, the better.  Although the
individuals involved in  this 
discussion are few, the LIST is large so there are
more out there who could  add to 
the long-term usefulness of a project of this
