Good for you John.  I encourage everyone to do this every year.  Using a 
tape recorder helps or find someone who takes shorthand to follow you 
around.....Kathyguest.....are you available.....   :-)

You are perfect for growing medians in a test or display garden.  That's 
all they ask, except for growing a good sampling of medians and showing 
your garden to the public.....go for it....
That goes for everyone else......as you can tell, I love to "Push" 
medians.  I personally think they are the future and salvation of the 
bearded iris.  TB's are history if trends continue.
