Glasshouse Gallery, RHS WIsley 10 - 4pm
We will have our usual Late Spring Competitive show, but there will also be lots more to see. Seeds and raising irises from them will also be another feature, plus Fern Harden as our ‘Artist in Residence’. A display of irises from Iris of Sissinghurst, who grow many of the Cayeux Irises. And of course, plants for sale from our members and Chailey Iris Gardens, www.bearded-iris.co.uk who specialise in American bearded iris, so plenty to delight the eye!
11.00 Flower arranging with irises, the natural way - Sophie Leathart has been a freelance florist for the past 30 years. She is very keen on using seasonal flowers and foliage and she will be demonstrating ways that people can create arrangements, for their homes or celebrations without using floral foam. Of course, irises will be central to her designs! www.blackknightflowers.com
2.00 How to propagate and look after your irises – Clare Kneen is an experienced iris grower, a hands-on gardener as well as our Trials Secretary and BIS Judge. She will cover both bearded and beardless iris.
