Hello everyone, I am Mark Brooks from Overbrook, Ks. Another Terry Johnson directee. I raised cattle for 25 years, framed houses for 40 years. Iris are much easier to drove and doctor than cows, closer to the ground than rooflines. I have a group of historics a neighbor lady gave my initial spouse 35 yrs back--Asia, Accent. Blue Rhythm, Jerry.
Got hooked by Cooley's catalogue in 06. I understand why they went to the smaller book, but the old one was cool.

Well, that's wonderful. I did know Terry had a great following. And rightly so.

For those who don't know Terry, let me post his blog again,. The best iris blog in the whole wide world.

Terry is a member here, and his blog is Heritage irises. There's always something new to be found on it, very informative, and he has quite the collection of links.

Just looking at Terry's blog again. I love that iris Green Delight. Anyone have that? It's an arilbred.

I wonder if it's only available in New Zealand. Like I lusted after some of Jennifer Hewitts sibs, only to find they weren't available here.

Hello,


My name is Danielle and I am from North Carolina. I was a member on Dave's Garden with the same handle. Wintertime came, I got busy, and I let my membership slide. However, I will be joining DG again. The iris forum over there is what got me hooked on TB. I placed an order last Sept. with Schreiner's. I ordered around around 35 TB, and recieved all of their 2009 intro's as bonuses. I ordered 10-15 iris from Spring Hill too (prior to realizing all the wonderful iris growers).

When planting time came I made sure to make a neat diagram of what TB iris I had planted. I never got around to getting tags in, and now I realized I have lost my diagram Glare Rolling my eyes. I have a list of all (maybe minus a few) that I have ordered. Thanks to me saving the email I recieved from Schreiner's confirming my order! I can't teven remember what I did with the order forms Blinking I have been terribly forgetful lately!


Hopefully, as they bloom I can I can get them identified. I was told that none may bloom the first year or very few. So I was very happy when I saw one TB sending up a stalk! However, it looks like 98% will bloom this year!!!!! Even the ratty Spring Hill TB iris Hilarious! The first TB that sent up its stalk looks like it will be blooming soon! However, so far I am only seeing 4 ish buds on stalks that are getting ready to bloom.

Does the bud count differ from first year planting to the norm mature bud count?

Aphids have decided to attack my TB as well!!!! I think I have them under control with the home remedies. If I haven't, what is a good store bought remedy?

Re-- aphids detergeant & water shaken up in a 'squirt bottle'. will help get rid of them. they can't stick their snozz into the plant coated with it. Good that you saved the packing list. Picture tags gone? Oops. good luck on the ID.

I did the detergeant and water. Then after the sun was off of them I did the water, veg. oil, and detergeant. The picture tags I failed to pick up, blew all over, and then I just threw them away :rolleyes:

I think I will be able to get a majority identified. After all, I have the list of varities. I just need to compare online with what the particular variety looks like, and look into the garden. Diagram it out, and hopefully voila!

Hi Danielle, welcome! Since you know what you bought, I bet some people on here will be able to give you an idea which ones are which. It's so much easier when you have a list of possibilities.

List are a big help because there are so many out there that would look alot like so so and turns out it is not. But with the list it will narrow the ID down greatly

Thanks for the welcome! Yep, I have a list that I am pretty sure is complete. I just need to get outside tomorrow while my daughter is napping (so I can concentrate Hilarious! ) and count how many I have. The only thing I wasn't 100% sure about was the bonuses I recieved. I know I recieved around 5-8 bonuses, and that they were all introduced by Schreiner's in 2009. Basically, I just went to their site and searched. Hopefully, I got all of them!

I think I planted them too close, though. I tend to plant my flowers too close.

I have been looking at your site, D, over and over again. I am trying to decide which ones will be my 2010 purchase. Its too hard! I want them all!!! Thumbs up

I use baking soda in water with soap as a sticker for my lilacs and monarda, and it has never hurt the ladybugs.


How old is your daughter, Danielle?
