Hmmm... Remind me to plan a trip to France and/or England when those babies are ready to be divided! I'm sure it will be cheaper than the postage! Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

...and I am still waiting for you to share the details of how to get in touch with this amazing vendor! Whistling

Which vendor do you want? I went a bit mad in September - I have bought from Laymont (think I've already given you that), another Cayeux order when they had their little sale (22, of which 2 are replacements); then I found Piatek (60 rhizomes), then (new confession) a very talented Polish woman called Kat Zalewska who has moved to England and creates some real beauties (I bought 9 from her: 8 of hers from 2015-2017 registration; plus one more Piatek). Bad, bad me. *Blush*
Here are the Kat creations (her photos, by kind permission):

Another great haul, Mika!! Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Yes, you did indeed share the Laymont site and a 'modest' order is already planned for next year - thank you very much! Big Grin
...and I have quite a few irises from Cayeux and more will come, I'm sure! Whistling

...which leaves the last two Piatek and Zalewska, please?

Lilli, Robert Piatek's website is all in Polish, but you can find him on Facebook. Kat Zalewska doesn't have a website, but is also on Facebook. Both are really nice. Smiling I'll post Robert's web address later so you can look at the pics - we're lounging by the pool right now and I'm feeling lazy!
My second Cayeux order arrived this afternoon, with 2 bonuses and in addition to those I remember ordering, there are 2 that I must have ordered but really don't recall doing so. A serious D'Oh! moment. Hilarious!

Liz, Piatek told me he ships all over Europe; the reason I got the big order I did from him was because he had just learned that he couldn't ship to Argentina because of import restrictions, so he may not want to risk the US. On the other hand, there do seem to be some of his irises in the US and they must have got there somehow! The Laymont website says nowhere outside Europe. I've just discovered a group of middle European growers, which I'll be investigating over the winter. If there's enough interest I could try to find an agent - almost certainly he/she would be in Amsterdam - who would do a combined shipment to the US, sort of like Tempo Two do, but combining rhizomes from different sellers - that way people could decide what they might like to buy, and everyone could share the cost of the phytosanitary certificate and shipping. Worth a try, or too complicated/too much hassle?
