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.

		Hi people,

		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
championships, where 
		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
gotten into 
		them fanatically.  I have a lot of Tall beardeds,
		spurias,siberians, japanese, californian and louisianas.
Although i 
		mainly collect as many species as i can.  At the moment
i have about 20 
		differnt ones.
		ok then i shall stop rambling on now
