It really would benefit you to get the AIS Handbook for Judges and Show
Officials. Whether you plan to become a judge or not it explains all
about the steps to become a judge, how to judge iris(garden judging as
well as show judging), what judges look for in a show and all about
putting together a show.
No, you don't have to grow all iris. It is virtually impossible to grow
them all. Some will not grow in your climate and vice versa for me.
You are encouraged to grow as wide and varied collection as is
manageable for yourself.
