Re: Lone Star Gardens

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

The abrupt closing of Lone Star Gardens raises many issues for the iris
community.  LSG was one of the main suppliers of Louisiana Irises, the
source through which Heather and Bernard Pryor introduced their wonderful
irises to North America, and had received all of Joe Mertzweiler's
seedlings and stock after his death.

The short note passed on by Tom Dillard does not fully explain this sudden
decision by Farron Campbell, nor does it tell us what will become of the
LSG stock, the Mertzweiler seedlings, or what the Pryors will do now to get
their irises to North American growers.

As an LSG customer I feel deserving of more information.
