HAPPY NEW YEAR

 

The garden is now open for internet orders. 2018  was one of the worst years since I have been growing irises some 45 years ago. We had a very cold Spring. Late April it started to rain and it has not quit yet. We had over 50 inches of rain from May to Sept. Weeds grew profusely.  The ground has not dried out since April. I dug orders in the mud this July, August, and September. My crop suffered quite a bit of soft rot from all the rain and weed cover. I am guessing I lost a 1/4 to a 1/3 of my inventory. I pretty much lost everything I planted the last 2 years. I am not going to plant any new varieties. Health issues and age are limiting my ability to take care of the garden like I use to.

Information about your order.

  Your order will be processed and shipped in the order it was received. Shipping will begin the latter part of July into early August unless you specify another shipping date. I will inventory your order to see if the irises you specifically want are available and let you know by email once I can get to work in the garden. Most of  my sales are to garden visitors. You should order before bloom season as I sell out of many during that time period.

Thank You

Jim

 

 

What’s Doing in the Garden

Our new online iris store is live. Go to our Shop page, and you’ll see photos of literally hundreds of irises you can choose from. Click an iris’s photo, and you can read more about it – and see listings and photos of related varieties. You can search for irises by name, by color, by hybridizer, by the year they were first introduced, by price range. You can even see which irises are the most popular, which ones our customers rate most highly, and which are the very newest. And once you’ve made your selections, our new shopping cart will let you pay by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express credit card or gift card – or by Paypal electronic funds transfer.
