Hi Dana,

When I did garden judging with George Sutton at the convention, we counted
number of bloomstalks to number of increases.  The ratio we were looking for
was 1 bloomstalk for at least 3 increases.  Then you don't have to count
number of years.

Several of us have been discussing the judges handbook and one of the things
that came up is the statement on pg 56 that:  "A tall bearded iris variety
should produce between 3 and 5 increases per rhizome per year."    The
questions raised were:
1. At what time of the year do you count increase to determine whether or
not an iris has met this criteria.
2. Do you count fans that produced a bloomstalk?  For instance, if you have
a 2 year old clump with 10 fans and 3 of them have bloomstalks.  Do you
assume that the 3 with bloomstalks were last years fans (because you planted
one and got the minimum 3 increase the first year) and the remaining 7 are
increase for the second year?  That would mean that 3 bloomstalks X 3
(minimum increase) should be 9 increase and this fan only had 7 making it
below acceptable.  Or, do you figure a two year old clump should have 9-25
increase and this clump has a total of 10 fans making it within the minimum
parameter?
