    Oh, gorgeous – my mother used to love these and was very successful at growing them.

      I once had a large bowlful of them, but not any more. Still have the bowl though so maybe next year I’ll have another go.

  5. I love the little early irises 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Sweet aren’t they?

      1. Just wonderful! I can never decide which colour is my favourite in them. Possibly the very pale blue one.

        1. Heyjude says:

          I also like the very pale blue one – I got several colours one year at Wisley, must look them up.

        2. I’m always forgetting to write the names down!

    I love all iris varieties!

      My mum was called Iris so I have always had a soft spot for them. Would love to grow some of the bigger ones again.

    Gosh, Jude ! – I’ve never seen those ! What a style they have !

    1. Heyjude says:

      All the beauty of the larger ones without the height – 4-6 inches.

      1. M-R says:

        They’re just gorgeous. Can you put a bunch in a little vase ? – or do they only like to have their feet in the earth ?

        1. Heyjude says:

          I’m sure you could cut them and put them in a small vase – like snowdrops – but I have never tried to. I do have some lovely scented daffodils in a vase though… you can share those if you like 😉

          Thank-you, Jude !!! 🙂
