We are in the middle of applying for National Collection status on our Miniature Tall Bearded Iris collection, as you all know! Its is growing at one end of my allotment atm.
Am very excited that the 'local' Plant Heritage official is finally coming to see it next week.
Nothing is in flower yet of course but we have one more winter in the ground before we should become an official collection holder....read many, many hoops jumped, not many more to go!
We added 5 more last autumn (2010) and another 8 coming this autumn (2011).
