Hi, Just a note to say I sent for my iris from Stockton and recieved
them the end of August, with a lote of extras, about double what I sent
for. I have ordered from them for quite a few years and have always
been well satisfied. Our iris society always orders from them for our
sale and auction in July. Have never been disappointed. Dee
