Yet again Iris of Sissinghurst was growing Iris for Cayeux display.
This year we created a small garden like display and the Irises performed beautifully A silver gilt medal was awarded to the stand and we were all very happy.
It was a difficult year ,totally different from previous year when nothing would come into flower ,this year all the Iris flowered early and some varieties were starting to go over even before Chelsea .
Just shows every year is different.
We were also delighted at Iris Domino Noir was awarded second place in the RHS Plant of Year at Chelsea It is a stunning almost black and white Iris .My old cat was black and white and called Domino!!
