I don't know if this is the appropriate place to put this, but here goes.

I am drowning in rhizomes. I ordered too many.

And then there came the bonuses...

A few of them, I am keeping (most likely in pots). A few of them went to particular people who I knew wanted them. (I looked up the irises on the database, noted which irises had people who wanted it, and contacted them.)

I want to give the rest away, preferably all in one batch, but first come, first served, one, some, or all, and you pay the postage. These rhizomes are all just as I received them from the sellers.

There may be another round of this (as I have a few orders still outstanding and what was I thinking of?), but this is what I have for now, and I need to get them out of the house. Rescue them, or off to the yard waste bin they go! (Most likely the box(es) will go out on Wednesday...)

The irises:

(I actually have this one on order from the hybridizer and will get 2 rhizomes, so (as those are already probably going to go into pots) I don't really need or want this third one)

(this looks like a bad image... check out the AIS one: http://wiki.irises.org/bin/view/TbPthruT/TbSugarDumpling?id=... )

Also included will be the following, but they are very small rhizomes and I have my doubts about their survival:

LIEGE LORD (this is a really puny rhizome)
MISS PRETTY (also puny, but not as bad)

In order of their receipt, I have a tree-mail claiming 'Sugar Dumpling', Snork has asked for 'I I Stutter' (send me a treemail), and Zazinnia has asked for the rest (if you still want what's left, send me a new email).

Thank you for your responses.

Hurray! It's always better to find a home for plants rather than them be composted or tossed, I'm sure they will bring a smile to both of your faces come spring. Thumbs up

Sorry, it was already given away.

Mods, is there a way to close and lock threads? Confused
