Hi everyone, 
I'm new here and this is my first season of gardening. I have a handful of things to trade for any iris. I love tall bearded iris, regular iris, all iris, and really need water/bog iris. I would love to get any all kinds and colors of iris named, noid, or unknown to trade or postage. I also have Better Homes and Gardens magazine vouchers 1 year each to trade with(have a good amount to work with, no exp date). So please email me anytime and hope to hear from other's soon
Thank you very much

Hi Lisa. Welcome! to our Forum.

The folks here are very generous with shares of their Irises -- but you're kind of late in the season for anyone to be digging now. Most trading (and selling) takes place from May through Sept./Oct.

However -- never know til you ask!! Green Grin!

Good morning Lisa. I am also a "new kid" on the block, so welcome. Spend some time reading the threads and you can get a pretty good idea on how things work. The folks here are very generous, I already have a couple "for postage" offers. These guys even send boxes to each other! Most of this seems to happen late summer.

So hang around and have fun.

Welcome Lisa.
For sure your garden will grow very well come next season. Maybe in your area planting iris this late in the year will work, but not in most of the US and Canada. So most trades, for postage, etc. are in the April-August months. Just remember to post this then as a reminder to all of us.

Welcome Lisa, I used to live in Tehachapi, just up the mountain, kind of, from Quartz Hill. Follow earlier advice and your garden will grow

Thank you all for your advice and help. Yes here it not to late plus we are in a drought.
I will repost in the right months for most.
