Re: CULT: About the Survey and AIS

There is always some rubbish floating around plant societies.

The idea in this survey was to identify some of today's best garden irises. 
Several people were even prepared to include ones which were not their 
strongest growers because they considered them very valuable, but overall the 
attention focused on beautiful irises which were also dependable performers 
and strong plants. I believe this is a useful body of information we have 

When I expressed the hope, that we not give our results, particularly in the 
compiled version which lacks nuance, more authority than those results 
actually have, it is not because I don't believe they should be borne in mind 
in relation to AIS issues. As a matter of fact, I think that collectively 
they offer insights which those charged with directing the course of AIS 
would do well to mull at some length. 

When I say this has not been an AIS activity as such, it is because while 
many if not most of us are members, this list is not an AIS group, nor did 
AIS as a governing body pose the question.

But I really do not believe that a person's individual contribution should be 
commandeered in support of other people's agendas for change within the 
Society with which the survey participant may not agree.
