Hello again all. . . thanks very much to the three of you who have made comments so far; very helpful to a possible revision. I had indeed run into quite a lot of "cold feet" sort of reactions when I approached various people about possibly publishing such a thing, mostly due to the fact that it hadn't been written by the people in question. I now doubt very much if any official iris organisation or association would publish such a text. However, all of the ideas are things I have heard over the years from very experienced iris people and apparently this is the way that irises of various status are to be handled. Having had a great deal of problems with folks who don't respect the idea of seedlings as the hybridizer's property, I really did think these things should be written down and published somewhere. I've half a mind to publish this on Facebook as well, though I'm not sure what kind of reception it would receive.
