Re: HYB: getting started (was new TBs)


That's an interesting 'starter' collection, Molly.

Most established hybridizers would advise buying the very best of
whatever is on the market that will get you moving towards your goals,
keeping in mind that what is being introduced this year is already
several generations "older" than what the hybridizer is working on right
now.

Most of the TBs you bought are fairly "old", but that doesn't
necessarily mean they aren't the 'best' for your goals and growing
conditions.  Some of my 'best' irises are <really> old (i.e., HELEN
COLLINGWOOD, SHANNOPIN, I. pallida).

Do you have some goals in mind already or do you want to make some
crosses mostly to learn how it all works and what to expect?
