I give cross number according to year cross is made. All crosses from this
year are 11-XXX .

Some people use a letter of alphabet, but I find using year enables me to keep
records much straighter.

Subject: [iris] HYB: question - numbering seedlings?

Now that I'm getting very close to having seedlings to introduce, I want
to clean up my seedling ID system a bit to maybe make it more useful to
the rest of the world by adding year to the ID.

When giving a year number, do  most people number for the year the seeds
were formed, the year the seedlings were planted, or (I assume not) the
year of maiden bloom?
