Group for Bearless Irises


About the GBI

Beardless Irises


Seed Available


As well as publishing an annual Review, the Group usually issues a cd which gives members a chance to exchange their photos and also to view plants and gardens they have seen during the year. I hope you will find them interesting.

Our thanks go to Jan Sacks & Marty Schafer for sharing photos of some of their exciting Siberian Iris seedlings and introductions. We are also pleased to enclose some photos of the Louisiana Irises grown by Mark Haslett. Further pictures have been provided by Jill & Alun Whitehead on their visits to John Massey's private garden at Ashwood Nurseries, to Jennifer Hewitt's garden at Haygarth, some reticulata plantings at Dunham Massey as well as from their own garden. We are grateful to John Massey for giving permission to use the photos - look out for the charity days when his garden is open to the public.

Please feel free to enjoy the photographs using the links below for your own private use. However, if you wish to use the photographs on this CD in any other way, permission must be sought from the photographers.
