Re: CAT: iris addiction

Hi Tammy,
My iris purchases divide into 3 categories:
1. Must haves - these are a very limited number (say 5 or 6) of 
expensive irises that I am prepared to pay full price for, which I will 
use for hybridising. I get these from the source that will send me the 
best quality rz's. I usually get good free gifts with these.
2. Collectors - 'Tried and True' popular varieties that I would like, I 
get these from cheaper sources, or swaps with other growers.
3. Suprises - I order a 'swag bag' from Blyths which will have at least 
a couple of new releases that I would 'die for' and these will often 
have a catalogue value equivalent to what you spent. The rest is a 
bonus. These are usually the better growers, that's why they have plenty 
to sell cheap.
I write out long lists over the winter, and work at reducing them to the 
'bare essentials'. Educating the kids (and straightening there teeth) 
are higher priority than irises here too.
