Friends, I've been doing a lot of research about establishing a business selling iris rhizomes and over the past two years have "tested the waters" by selling rhizomes on Facebook sales pages. After a lot of deliberation, I said to myself "Why not?", and have decided to become an iris vendor online. No foolin'! Big Grin Crying

IrisMeisters.com opened today. This first year, the list of offerings will be small with about 95 varieties available. I plan to add more varieties each year, but as a home-based business on a couple of acres, I'll not compete with the large commercial vendors.

'Thank you' to all who have provided insights on iris care and culture, and for sharing your experiences. Since I joined garden.org in 2016, I've learned so much from all of you and I am grateful. Thank You! Let the adventure begin!
