Talkback: Winter iris

I bought a deep violet iris reticulata last spring at Hodstock Priory and it is now in full flower in my rockery. What a beautiful site it is, especially after all the snow we had earlier in the month.


  • They just cheer me up when I see them. The yellow centres are definitely like the first rays of spring sun.
  • Thanks for the tip re planting them in gravel. That's where my spoils from the RHS show last week are going to go.
  • I have my mini irises as i call them in front of the kitchen window. near my bird feeders - a good start to the day!

    CAN we have a blog about natural water gardens or rather gardens working around natural water, i have a small lake a beck runs through it and the level rises and falls by approx 4/5 feet I have various water irises planted around it, what else other than grass buttercups nettles and brambles will survive?
  • Saw my first iris opened today and others on their way,Spring is nearly here!!
  • I had a particularly fine specimen of Iris edward outside my office. The other day, as I watched, a decorator dropped a lump of old carpet from an upstairs window. Bet you can guess exactly where it landed!
  • Liz: How very lucky you are, I will bear your request in mind,I promise.
  • I had a walk around the garden and saw a splash of purple , what a lovely surprise ,it dosen't take much to please
  • My Winter hanging baskets are beautiful.....pansies,tete-a-tete miniature daffodils and iris reticulata.
  • hai all I have a blog that provides a variety of music, western, indonesian, mandarin, malaysia, japan, india music, and island-bred and other music instruments rapt relaxed time to listen please download the free
  • my mini-iris are stunning - picked up last year at 50p a pot (out of date at the garden centre) I put them in a pot with my Hot Chocolate rose and some palest lavender violas and they are so delicate....hope I have enough to divide this year...
