CAT: Ordering from Australia

Yep - summer in Australia - overcast and cold, sneezing and snuffling 
from the 'flu', and rugged up in a thick woolly jumper - and really 
looking forward to Christmas (not!)

If anyone is importing from Australia, the best time is probably our 
Autumn. They will arrive at the end of your spring, ready to be planted 
at the same time as normal. They may bloom in their first Autumn. If you 
want specific irises from Barry Blyth or Graeme Grosvenor, order early, 
and specify your delivery time. If you order later, you may not get what 
you want, or you might get a smaller rhizome, as they are nearly sold 
BTW - all my orders from Tempo Two have been good sized and extremely 
healthy. The main consideration, if you order a new cv. is how it will 
grow in your area. Remember our winters are not severe, and our summers 
are very hot and dry (er, usually).

Regards, Jan Clark
