I decided to `throw all caution to the winds' and post to the list
on this question - delete guys if you choose.
Sonya, I just purchased this book for $11.95 (American $) and thought
it wasn't worth that, frankly. However, since you live in New Zealand
and Grosvenor is an Australian, it might be worth your time to read
it. He discusses his own gardens in detail...useless for me in the
tundra of North America. Write to me off-post & we can talk.
I like to talk about iris books and I think this *is* a subject
pertinent to our iris-l and our hopefully, growing knowledge
of the genus.
