Here is the scope from their website!

"Just some updates--the 2018 descriptive mail order catalog went to the printers on Monday and we hope to begin mailing it in about 10 days or so. Anyone who has ordered iris within the last 2 years automatically gets one. If you haven't and would like one, send us a check for $1.50 and you'll get a 2-year subscription. We will hopefully begin billing the pre-catalog orders in a few days. We like to close that portion of the sales season before regular catalog orders start pouring in, so when you get your bill by e-mail, please send a check as soon as possible to help us with the paperwork, thanks. We are still accepting pre-catalog orders if you're interested in that process to beat the rush on our newly acquired iris or those varieties that are in short supply."

I can't wait for my catalog to arrive.

I agree I'm not sure if I'll add to my very small pre-order, but I HAVE to look! nodding Whistling

Pretty sure my pocketbook is saying that I already ordered plenty (15)! Going to be sending them a big check I fear once that pre-order invoice gets here. And I didn't even look at the SDB's.......! Reminds me, I need to ask them if Atomic Glow can be one of my bonuses since mine was mostly taken over by rot.

I came in for lunch. Maybe I'll look at the catalog this evening. I am afraid that if I look now, I will be looking up every single iris that I don't already know. That could take some time.

I think that would take a big chunk out of my gardening day. It is 65°, absolutely the best temperature for working in the garden! Thumbs up Hurray!

Going back out there! Angel

I'm on page 8. If it was snowing, I probably would have finished and placed an order.

But since the weather is nice, I have been working outside for most of the day. When I am trudging through the hard red clay, I am not encouraged to go crazy and order a lot more irises. This coming spring I am hoping to do my first cross. This will be on established irises in my garden. The next year, maybe some more will be established well enough to be used for that purposes.
