Thank you for enlightening me on the northern hemisphere understanding of
"bung". I will do my best to not use it in iris-talk chat dialogues as
appreciate that the word may be understood in a rather indelicate manner.
These cross-cultural things can cause unnecessary embarrasment for all
In relation to the Lone Star releases, I must admit that I would have
difficulties in chosing a favourite from them. I don't know what your
colour preferences are for your garden, etc. and would not like to recommend
something that may not be to your taste.
All I can say is that I have only sent to Farron those Iris which I feel are
outstanding for growth, increase etc. etc. and which should be of the
highest quality. May I suggest that you have a glance through our web site
http://www.pip.com.au/~irishaven and if you find something there which
takes your fancy I will be more than happy to provide you with further
Cheers for now, Heather Pryor firstname.lastname@example.org
