Re: Re: Seedling I-103b

Thanks for your kind words, Neil.  And to think I complain because I have to
go and collect rocks, since there aren't any to be found on this particular
piece of prairie!  We're building a big rock garden on an existing earth
berm.  When you need a lot of rocks, I notice you start picking smaller and
smaller rocks.

Mind you, on this property, we had to start from scratch, and rather than
dig up grass, we used landscape ties in some areas, then trucked in lots and
lots of topsoil.  I have 4 iris nursery beds, about 8 x 32 ea that allow me
to keep an eye on both the new irises, plus the smaller MDB's.  Then, when
it's time to move an iris out into the landscape, I always leave 1 piece in
the nursery, just in case.  I've only lost 1 plant since I've started doing

We still have a couple of feet of snow here, but spring's supposed to be
here within 6 weeks...
