Well bloom season is over or the year. The view was spectacular to say the least. I have many new variety that bloomed for the first time, always a special moment. I have had a few surprises show up, unlabled plants that turned out to be my special ones. I must have had a piece and stuck it in the ground.
After -32 deg winter and a cold wet spring, we now have had super hot 30+ weather. Hard to keep enough water on them in this heat. Goofy blooms, 4 petals, 6 petals, streaks and dots on falls it was interesting.
Thanks for all the orders and thanks for all the garden tours that came thru. The BCIS tour was great and it was nice to meet a lot of like minded people and put a face to a name. I got to spend the day with Andrea and have supper with her and some local people after the tour. A lot of local garden clubs came out to view the flowers and I met some really nice people.
I am still going to have the 10 iris for $30.00 my choice on what you get. This is for the dwarf iris as well as the tall bearded ones.
If you have an order placed be patient. I will start digging in July and let you know how things are looking. Remember I am not a commercial garden, just a home gardener with a lot of iris. If something goes wrong with a plant, like scorch for example, I lose the whole plant, and can't fill that order. I get this when the temperture is above 30 deg and I can't get enough water on the plants. Way out of my control.
Also when I contact you I try to edit the emails to clean up the ordering lists. Please go thru them to ensure that I didn't miss anything. It is hard to keep track when bits and pieces are scattered all over. Email has been glitchy this year also and some don't go thru, don't know why but I can not control that either. So to remedy that I am trying to send updated lists and estimating mailing times to help avoid miscommunication.
HOW TO ORDER: mp _ firstname.lastname@example.org
email me your wish list. I will then go over it and let you know what is available. I prefer that you use the same email to contact me each time. You can edit that email by hitting reply and then you can type or add or remove anything on it.
I usually contact you when I am ready to dig the order, that will be in late July or early August. I will let you know if the iris you want are still available and confirm that you are ready to receive them. Mother nature does funny things over the course of the growing season and I won't sell an iris that is unhealthy or too small.
I AM NOW CALLING IT WISH LIST ORDEREING! If I have it you get it. I am finding it hard to keep my website updated. So by sending a wish list I hope that you won't be disapointed.
Please email me your with list and I can keep you updated that way. If by chance something comes available I will let you know and update your email with the changes. Please contact me using this email address. mp _ unruh @ hotmail.com
