<< obtaining a seedling from a big hybridiser doesn't 
 necessarily put you 'ahead' with YOUR breeding program, even if it is a

Some that offer to let you grow their seedlings in trials specifically state
that you can't use their seedling for hybridizing until it is introduced.  You
are not ahead when this happens, except, if it grows well in your area, you
have a lot of pollen to daub the year it is introduced. 

This is one of the best reasons for taking the four best available and
creating your own lines.  When using another's iris, introduced not seedlings,
you are 6 to 10 years behind from the start.  How far depends on how fast the
iris grows.
