Re: CULT: Very Best of Our Best

I'm also finding it really interesting to hear about what grows well in 
different geographic locations. I've always been curious about that. In this 
survey we set the standard high and asked for first hand experience and folks 
are responding with what they have learned. Sure, it is subjective and 
anecdotal information, but how could it be otherwise? 

Now, obviously we are not hearing about EVERYTHING that grows well within the 
sight of our voices, since not everyone committed to growing irises is on 
this list, and it is clear that we all, and presumptively the others, have 
wondrously idiosyncratic collections containing all sorts of irises, but we 
have assembled a good deal more information about some things than we have 
had before. And we have learned more about each of us here who has shared 
what they know, which is a very fine thing, too, and perhaps the finest thing 
of all. 

I'm not worried about people jumping to firm conclusions. I'm confident that 
folks are aware of the rollicking informality of the situation and the limits 
of the data we have assembled and all the variables. But there was no 
hypothesis to be proven, other than that people here had learned some 
interesting things.    

And just think, Borer, at the beginning we worried that no one would want to 
come to our party...... now we need to rent a ballroom and get a band!
