Hi Judy, 

Regional test gardens were tried a number of years ago because it sounded 
like a good idea.  Unfortunately, these gardens were abandoned because neither 
the public nor AIS members and judges visited them.  My garden is listed as a 
Dwarf Iris Display Garden, a Median Iris Display Garden and a Siberian Iris 
Display Garden.  I can hardly drag area judges to the garden during their bloom 
seasons, let alone other people.  Our public iris display garden in a city park 
gets some visitors and a few of them express real interest in the irises.  
Most just walk through and say how pretty they are.
