I'm really enjoying Rose Week and look forward to an Iris Week. Is one scheduled? Hope so.

Yes, in April. Thanks Paul and Sue.

We could really use some ideas for articles, and some people willing to do articles, so please be thinking about this.

Any volunteers, just let me know, and I hoped after seeing rose week, I would come p with some ideas.

Dennis, I guess whatever you might come up with. We can use the rose week articles as a guide. Thanks.

I was just coming over to encourage iris articles Green Grin!

Thanks for bringing it up, Paul!

We would love to have many different contributors! Short "tips" and longer articles are all very much welcome.

We would love to have some sponsored raffles like we did with Rose Week. If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them. Also, Dave and I love to do a podcast interview pertaining to the plant of the month. Recommendations or suggestions are very much welcome!

I'm all ears! I can't wait to see what we come up with for Iris Week!! Hurray!

I will do an article on the method I use to germinate iris seed and raise the seedlings if that would be of interest. We've discussed it on cubits before. I have pictures of small seedlings to bloom. I'll try to think of a prize....perhaps a box of named rhizomes but wouldn't ship those til early August. . Could also do an article on the classes of bearded iris. I'm glad to help with one of my top favorite flowers. Thumbs up
