Hudson Valley iris and Daylily Society 2010 Events

I have been lucky enough to meet the fine folks who are fanatic about daylilies, iris and gardening in general. A very friendly bunch always looking to share their knowledge with anyone who will listen. Here is a sampling of their event calendar for this year:

Bruce Baird and John Heimke are master iris growers and members of the Capital Hudson Iris Society.  They will walk us through the process of preparing our irises for the annual Iris Show including selecting irises from your garden, transporting them to the show site, cleaning and tending them, and insuring they look their best when the judges come around and peer so intently at them.  Marlboro Free Library  May 2
