If you are in or near the NE Dallas/Garland area this coming Saturday (June 11, 2016), Fresh Connections Community Garden in Garland is having a plant sale from 8:00am-10:00am. Proceeds benefit the garden and the associated food bank run through Buckingham United Methodist Church. The garden is located behind the church at 1212 W. Buckingham Rd, Garland, TX 75044.

All items on this donation list are from my garden including 50 (mostly) named Iris. (There will be other folks donating plants, I only have information on mine, though. Smiling ) Five of the Iris do not have confirmed IDs, but--with the exception of Spouting Horn--I am 99.87% sure they are correct. Spouting Horn may only be a 60/40 guess, but it looks close enough to be an example. Also, four Iris have not yet bloomed for me, so identity isn’t guaranteed. The person who gifted the unbloomed ones to me is generally accurate in marking rhizomes, however mislabeling on my end is always possible—tis a slight gamble. Those nine are grouped at the top. Each of the remaining 40+ Irises named on the list have confirmed IDs from bloom in my yard.

6/9/16: Thanks to a generous NGA member, additional donated plants have been entered at the bottom of the post.


6/9/16: Iris will be priced at $3.00 per rhizome.
Some rhizomes are naturally small which does not necessarily reflect the eventual size of the foliage or bloom. Most of these rhizomes have been potted in clean soil for some weeks and have good, healthy root systems. The others were freshly dug in the last two days.

Quantities are correct down to Love The Sun. I will finish up preparations tomorrow and update quantities on the remainder of the list if necessary. Might also have more to add, will just have to see if there are any I pulled and forgot to write down. Big Grin

6/9/16: IRIS QUANTITIES ARE NOW CORRECT.

If you have any questions with regard to the sale, I will do my best to answer them for you.

Edited to change some quantities and add a few more. Smiling Removed Orange Harvest altogether--the roots weren't well enough developed to let it go for sale.

Nanette, if there are any plants left from their sales, the community garden folks either split them up for the helpers or hold on to them for the next sale. One of the organizer's still has plants she had been tending that I gave them for last JULY'S sale! Big Grin But thank you for your interest! Smiling
