Re: Re: HYB: seed germination & bloom season

By the very nature of the beast . . . when you use rebloomers, you are  going 
to get a number of "early' seedlings.  
Maybe the best way to breed late bloomers would be to wait until the last  
week of bloom season to make crosses.  It seemed to work for a couple of  
hybridizers that didn't make crosses until all other iris activity was  complete.  
Brown & Hamblen ?  Anyone?
Ghio's introductions seem to run to late bloomers lately . . . ML.  

But the question of the day is, "Can someone with twitching tweezers wait  
until even the 2nd week of iris bloom to make crosses?"  <vbg>   OR can this 
same person NOT plant all of their seed?  
If you  don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
