Irresistible Irises

November 15, 2015


Hundreds of glorious Bearded Irises presently bloom through the garden - my favourite plant - or is that Alliums?


Recently I have begun collecting the Irwell Irises - 84 at this stage. These have been bred by New Zealander Ron Busch  (1935 - 2012) whose home and garden were at Irwell in Canterbury. A prolific breeder (since 1958) of many beautiful Irises.


My potager has become Iris gardens whilst I wait to see the first flowering before placing the Irises in their permanent homes. So enthralled am I by the wondrous sight from my kichen windows that I am now planning to let two of my four vegetable gardens remain as Iris gardens.


Alliums in the other two?
