It would be nice to see it as an article in "irises"........titled something like "One Hybridizer's View On Ethics in the Garden ", or some such ! I think, too often, all of us 'forget" our "manners' when it comes to *sharing* iris, or even iris photographs......something that I do, and always with mixed emotions Sticking tongue out ....is "share", or trade, iris with other 'iris buddies', and at the same time, bemoan the loss of the "commercial sellers" who go *out of business* ! In reality , the best way to keep those *commercial sources*, ...is to BUY from them ! I usually try to purchase iris from the hybridizer, if possible.......ie. the Tasco's from Superstition, or the Spoon's from Winterberry, and , although I seldom buy "new introductions", (I tend to wait until the price comes down, a bit *Blush* ), I still would rather give them the chance of selling their "own" iris. ( That is rather hard to do, as , most of the hybridizers I tend to "collect", have been tending the big iris garden in the sky for a long time Sticking tongue out )
