RE: Exhibiting -- was Wish me luck
Old milk bottles are ideal for exhibiting a large variety of flowers
including iris. Wide-mouthed juice bottles, e.g., V-8 bottles, also
work. We use pieces of cedar hedge to to wedge the stalks in place.
Some people use cork.
Good luck and keep having fun.

I have been on the list for about a month now and so far
i haven't made
many postings, as i am from Tasmania Australia and dont
know a lot about
the USA and zones and things.
Coming up this week is the Hobart Horticultural
societies Iris and Rose
show, and I am going to enter again this year. I have
been entering for
about the last 2 years and have a few firsts, but i just
like to enter
for fun really. I am going to enter into the A.N.Z
i need to exhibit 12 blooms of distinct varieties. I
was wondering if
anyone had any good ideas for containers or vases to put
them in???? I
will also be entering a few species ones so I hope i do
well. It is all
so very exciting!!!!
Well just before i go and if you are interested, he he
he he, I am
17(turning 18 next week!!) and i have been growing
Irises for about 4 or
5 years, although only in the last 3 or so have i really
them fanatically. I have a lot of Tall beardeds,
spurias,siberians, japanese, californian and louisianas.
mainly collect as many species as i can. At the moment
i have about 20
ok then i shall stop rambling on now
