Yes to slides if they are GOOD, and arranged to make specific points, such
as showing the parts of a flower, differences between bearded, Japanese,
Siberian, etc. It's ok to show some just because they are pretty, but there
needs to be a flow of logic. They should illustrate your talk, not the talk
caption the slides.
If your audience is going to grow irises, planting and dividing are pretty
important subjects, and also lend themselves to illustration by slides.
I'm afraid a little about pests and diseases in necessary, but also bring in
Yes to handouts if they supplement your talk. No if they are just lists.
I guess you can go light on sourcing, but not omit it.
