Re: TB: HYB: Garden Vs. Show Bench

<< What I am
 hearing from hybridizers is a little disturbing...they say very few if any
 judges drop by their seedling patch but will attend shows to judge seedlings.


It not enough for a judge to visit seedling patches.  They must also carry a
notebook.    It unrealistic to think you can remember a seedling number later
to write it down.  It doesn't matter how good the seedling is if you don't
vote for it.

I spent the last couple of years finishing a degree and had little time for my
iris garden-it was in sad shape by the time I moved.  On show day, the judges
from the show would faithfully try to part the weeds in search of my
seedlings.  Unfortunately, I was at the show.
