Re: Iris breeding
In a message dated 06/02/97 14:34:59, amongst huge amounts of wisdom (as
usual) Bill asks:
<< are collectors the main buyers of iris rhizomes? >>
In my experience, no. Collectors account for perhaps 10-15% of our sales. The
rest are to general gardeners and to other nurseries.
But even collectors want gardenable irises.
I do not think the age of the TB is over - merely that people everywhere are
waking up to the other irises (and not a moment too soon!)
