Subject: iris in hypertufa troughs
From: drsnooks@buffnet.net

Hello, ALL!

I'm putting my head into your gathering for just a minute to ask for some

I'm giving a workshop/demonstration on making hypertufa troughs to an Iris
Society next month and would like to know about growing iris in them. These
containers are made of portland cement,peat and perlite, so the soil is
likely to be alkaline.

Please comment of the adviseability of growing some small species Iris in
these containers, and send ANY specific suggestions, plz.

It would seem to me an almost ideal way to grow some species Iris that are
not hardy in zone 5 & 6.

Thanks in advance!
