Re: HYB: post freeze 6 weeks

Linda, if this is of any help, you can have seeds from me.

i will have way too many seeds in November, at least 500 crosses have already taken, and i won't make the same mistake as last year, i won't seed them all. It's too awful to have to throw them away now, because i don't have room for more than 1000 seedlings.

So when the harvest is done and i know what has managed to ripen, and when i know what i will seed, i will send the list on the iris forum and you can chose what you would fancy.
Nothing easier than to send the seeds in an enveloppe by normal mail!

Subject: [iris] HYB: post freeze 6 weeks

FYI - based on past experience with bad late freezes here, it takes about 6 weeks for things to start being fertile.

So if you were hit hard by the freeze and nothing that's managed to bloom so far has been fertile, you might start having some success now.

Down to the very last few blooms here - too hot and dry to have any luck here.
