Kris Jurik will be speaking to the Central Iowa Daylily Society April 14th. Her talk is ‘So you want to see my irises- which ones, and when?’ Kris and Tom Jurik have an incredible garden! You may remember it as a host garden during the American Iris Society 2017 Convention.
The meeting is in the Fisher Community Center, Room A, Marshalltown from 1:30 pm to 5:00 pm. The complete 2018 calendar for the Central Iowa Daylily Society can be found here.
A number of Region 21 members speak about irises to various garden interest groups. BJ Jackson spoke earlier this year at the Manitoba Horticultural Association Annual Meeting. Kris Jurik has been speaking to various Iowa Master Gardener groups. And Wayne Messer presented at the Cass County (Iowa) Master Gardener Spring Seminar. Both Gary White and Kelly Norris speak to a variety of gardening groups.
Would having PowerPoint slides from such presentations be useful to you or your club? Maybe for presentations to your club or so you could speak to other groups. As an example, this is a series of slides, mostly dealing with the 2016 Medal Winners, from a presentation by Wayne. The link is to a PDF so you do not require PowerPoint or a similar program to see the slides.
Please let us know what you think. You can leave comments below or email Wayne at firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
Something I learned from reading the Autumn 2016 Newsletter of the Can-West Iris Society; BJ Jackson will be giving a presentation “Medians: The Other Bearded Iris” as part of the 119th Manitoba Horticultural Association’s annual meeting. BJ is a Region 21 member and the president of the Can-West Iris Society. Her presentation will be Friday, January 27, 2017 at 11 a.m. at the Killarney United Church, Killarney, Manitoba. The registration form (PDF) and program (PDF) are online. Preregistration deadline is January 9th. For further information, the email email@example.com is the contact for the Manitoba Horticultural Association.
A great way to get your January iris fix!
