The latest from Superstition Iris Gardens...........

Thumb of 2016-08-10/Misawa77/fe493b


"Actually, not coming "soon", but coming for 2017. We finally have our names cleared for our potential 2017 introductions and we will start unveiling them this winter. Plans are calling for up to 12 intros, our most ever, and they cover most bearded classes. In other updates, we shipped week #5 this past Monday, are currently working on week #6 (of 9) and week #6 will ship this coming Monday (Aug 8). We are "on schedule" and hope to stay that way for the remainder of the shipping season, we are working around physical limitations that we haven't had to deal with before, but are still "on schedule". Order deadline is this Saturday August 6 and it is an "in our hands" deadline, so if you haven't mailed your order yet, it is likely too late to do so to have it reach us in time. OK, now back to this week's dig we go............."

Ok, I see two things to take away from this note/announcement.

The 2017 introductions can be as many as TWELVE (12)!!! OMG Hurray!

They will start showing them off around January 1st if they hold form (meaning this is how they have done it in the past). They may keep to that and show us one a day; or two or more a day; or they could start on December 25th with their "Xmas" presents and still do one a day. AWESOME.


The bad news in this note?!?!??

Last order day was August 6th; which was last Saturday............and the order must have been "in their hands".

Bummer.

If a certain little SDB they told me about is introduced I will be first in line to get it!

But I better get all of theirs from this year in the ground before I go buying more. Hilarious!

Thought I would look through the "Tasco on Tasco" thread and see what seedlings I listed before might be in the "Dirty Dozen" Superstition plans on introducing next year.

Here is the thread if you are interested in going back and reliving it!
