I had the same problem last year...i ended up with 1000 seedlings!
It seemed a lot at the time,
but this year is worse...there shoud be 10 000 seedlings!
Time of replanting is approaching, and i won't have the courage to dig enough beds for them all.
The choice is going to be drastic:
Most TB X TB will have to disapear, they take too much room, and Holland is such a small country!
I'll keep only the small and middle ones, that have rebloomers in they ancestors.
That should reduce the lot by half.
I still have a month to dig...
i guess even the lawn will have to go!

Subject: [iris-photos] CULT: Way too many

In the past I had very poor germination. I had the pots sitting on a cement wall. This year I sunk them in the ground. During the winter I had nightmares that all would germinate ( around 2000 seeds). Well they almost have.
I do not have the space or energy to plant all of them. Which ones do I save?
This is as bad as trashing seedlings that bloom.
Example of the germination in photo!
