|Sue, just in case you'd like to pick up some more recent high quality irises before your move, Joe Ghio has what he calls "Surprise Packages." I don't know if it's too late, but since it's early September it may not be. Here's what he says about them in his catalog.
"At the end of the season we dig and replant all of our stock. We are left with surplus rhizomes of many recent varieties, some of which were not listed due to earlier limited replant stock. We want to share this wealth with you. Send us a sum of money ($40, $50, $65, $100 or whatever -- $40 minimum on this offer, plus $12.00 shipping/handling charge. We will send you irises with a LIST value of about three times the monetary value which you send us. (Our listed sale prices are approximately half or less the NORMAL list prices.) We will begin shipping SURPRISE PACKAGES at the end of our regular shipping season near mid to late August and continue until stock is depleted in September. Only Surprise Packages of bearded irises are available."
So if you're interested, here is Joe's email address:
