Tossing away the wrong ones can be hard in the beginning, and you must not do that with witnesses around...they scream : " how lovely it is..." "you shouldn't", "how cruel", "can i have it?..."
So when you plan playing Cruella in your garden be sure no one is around . It should be a solitary "thing"...
I've bean teaching for 20 years, and i've used all the patience and understanding i could, even with hopeless cases. There was alway hope for progress.
 Now, with irises, there is absolutely NO MERCY anymore... what an amazing liberty!

That is also pretty amazing, Loic.

<To go on with mixing old ones with very old ones...

Gold of Autumn is from 1961, Spirit of Memphis from 76.>

One of the things I like about working with these old ones is that it's
really obvious which ones go immediately to the compost heap!

Can't believe I'm calling something born so recently "old" :-)

<The 9 others that bloomed in the spring were immediately sent to the
compost heap,>

Thanks, Loic.
