Re: OT: BIO:

From: "Mark, Maureen" <MARKM@tc.gc.ca>


What is your name?

Don't worry about your lack of experience.  There are lots of novices on
iris-talk.  Just be willing to ask questions and share experiences.

In my area (zone 4), I have been digging and planting bearded iris from
mid-July to mid-August -- preferably earlier than later in that time period.

Perhaps to help you out, everyone can list their top 5 performers this year.
You can also check the archives.  I started a thread on MUST HAVEs as I was
poring over catalogues in late winter.
