 	<Do you wash your plants?  We do.>
Walter, we have asked our members donating rhizomes to please wash them in a 
10% chlorine bleach solution.  We tell them that this not only cleans the 
dirt, but might prevent transferring any little critters, seen or unseen, to 
the garden of the purchaser.  Most of our members honor our request, but 
there are always a few... My guess is that most "old-hand" irisarians follow 
this practice whenever any rhizome leaves their premises, and I also imagine 
that most give this treatment to those coming in from non-commercial sources.
