I have received one of the TB`s you mentioned :PrincesseCaroline de Monaco
; which was of excellent size and quality. The other rhizomes was just more
or less standards.
We ( The Danish Iris and Lilysociety ) import from France, good quality
rhizomes to a reasonably price Apr. 3-5 US dollar for standards , and 10-20
US dollar for almost new hybrids.
We would like to import iris from US , has anyone any good suggestions ?
I think you will be pleased with Princess Caroline de Monaco if she grows
for you like she did in Colorado!
Many of the established iris suppliers in the US are able to fill foreign
orders. As an example here are the directions for foreign orders from the
1998 Stockton Iris Gardens catalog, which are quite typical:
"Minimum order $100 plus shipping and handling and documentation fees.
Customer must include payment of $10 for phytosanitary certificate. The
customer must also provide any import permits. Estimated air shipping
charges are $9.50 for the carton and first plant, $2.30 for each additional
tall bearded plant and $1.00 for each additional median rhizome. The
estimated charges must be included prior to shipment, with the payment for
the order. In the event of overpayment, a refund will be sent to the
customer with the order. If additional funds are needed to cover postage
costs, an invoice will be sent to the customer with the order. No foreign
orders will be accepted after August 1, 1998 for the 1998 shipping season.
Customers will receive bonus irises of our choosing and will not be billed
for any additional expense relating to the shipping of such bonus irises."
Another source - closer to home for you - that you may wish to check out is
Croftway Gardens in England. They have a website and online catalog at
http://members.aol.com/Croftway/. They ship throughout the EU. Graham
