Last column : number of seedsHello everyone
This is why i give these seeds away:
1st, they take too much room, and i'd rather have 500 sdb,
or 350 ib than 200 tb in each bed!
2nd, they need lots of food to achieve 15 buds per stalk,
(which seems to be the minimun nowdays to be taken seriously with TBs...) , and
with the humidity here, food means rot!
3rd, Blyth, Keppel, Tasco, Ghio, Black and co...,( sorry
Betty, i cannot name everyone here...) have reached such a level
that is hard to compete with, unless i come up with sth new, and i'd rather do
that with smaller ones.
When i look at my crosses, i only really get excited by the ones
that might NOT reach the fatidic 28 inches, but i also don't fancy the SDB that
are too small..
So, i must stick to tall SDB, IBs and BBs. There is still a
lot to be done there, especially with the new RE tetra MTBs that can mix with
the sdb, the ib, the bb and the tb.
We've got Dolce, whose cute smaller flowers give a
total different look to the plant, but it's a TB.
I want to go in this direction.
They are not many that have a bit of Abridged version,
Northern Jewel or Apricot drops in their genes, and i intend to add Elegant
Lass, Rave review, Aglow again to the list.
I really love these dainty smaller
flowers, on thinner stalks.
They will become the rage one day: they are totally in
proportion, scale wise, to fit SMALLER gardens.
If you are stuck with a big bunch of an enormous TB, it
makes a small garden look suddenly minuscule;
with a big bunch of a smaller iris, the smaller garden keeps
with alpines around, the trick is done, the illusion of
space is achieved.
That's why i give away the seeds i've got from TB X TB
crosses to anyone who wants them.
These are crosses from spring, they are cropped, so
The crosses from summer are still in the garden so that will be for much
