Subject: [iris-talk] HYB: AB's - only the beginning?


>Hi all,
>Great to see the list fire up again, with some interesting topics to chew
>on.
>Yesterday all my christmases came at once. I had decided to spend the day
at
>TEMPO TWO (Barry Blyth's nursery) but my iris growing friend suggested that
>we go and visit Sam Fankhauser, who is a top AB breeder in Australia.
>Sam is in his mid 80's and has not been keeping good health lately. He has
>decided to give many of his irises away, starting with his beloved AB's,
for
>fear that, if anything happens to him, they will just be composted, and
>lost.
>Well, I don't know a lot about AB's and had a collection of 7, up until
>yesterday. My collection has now grown to 37, 14 of those being
unregistered
>seedlings which Sam saw fit to keep. I am in a bit of a daze - the
>significance hasn't sunk in yet. I haven't even managed to plant them yet.
I
>feel extremely priveledged, and I can hardly bear to think of the time I
>must wait until they bloom for me.
>I am hoping to visit Sam again after Christmas, with a view to talking
about
>hybridising, and looking at photos. I shall spend a lot of time over the
>holidays, re-reading the archives, and exploring Sharon's web page.
>Meanwhile Mr. Fankhauser is going trout fishing. Hope he catches a big one!
>Cheers, Jan Clark, Aus
