The under-the-tree-semp garden. Notice that they are climbing up the trunk in some pix.

Kate,

GORGEOUS place! Do you have a price list??

I'm speaking in Maine in early October with my topic "Hybridizer on the Loose" that will cover a lot of my crazy hybridizing projects, including the semps. If you'd like to attend, I'l give you the particulars. If you can't make it I might be able to drive and visit with you.

O boy Kate, lucky you. Hurray! Hurray!
Wish we could all go and hear you speak Kevin. Anything planned here in the Pacific Northwest any time soon? I know you just did one not to long ago. I was gone out of state and missed it. Sad

Maine (at least some of it) is not too far from me. Where is your gig - I'd love to attend. And even better would be if you could visit. Remember, I have guest rooms.

I don't have a price list, but I do have an inventory list. Usually just send a couple of full-size and a couple of small ones (not new babies) for $5.00 within the continental US plus the actual shipping costs. A few exceptions to that for things like the heuffs and S. 'Fame Monstrose' that are slow spreaders.

Kate,

My talk is Columbus Day weekend in the Portland area. Region One of the American Iris Society is sponsoring the event but I will forward you all the information about the meeting when I receive them. There is a luncheon along with my program and these are generally fun affairs as it's a room full of insane gardeners!

If this doesn't work for you I'll try to bounce up and visit your nursery. I was born and raised in MA and many friends and relatives are still there. I miss them but I prefer Oregon's climate. Much more benign!

Kevin
