Next date: December 17, 10:00 AM -NOON in Louisiana Iris Display Garden and 9:00-10:00 AM in the Master Gardeners Super Plant garden.
In the morning of the third tuesday each month, volunteers from GNOIS and the Master Gardeners of New Orleans gather at the Sculpture Garden in City Park to do light maintenance in the GNOIS Display Garden for a couple of hours. This iris planting will be featured at the Society For Louisiana Irises National Convention in April 2014, and it is a great place to see Louisiana irises labeled by cultivar name.
New volunteers are welcome. Members and friends of GNOIS and the Master Gardeners will receive an email notice of the exact time. Watch the newspapers for notices, also.
Thank-you irises are provided to those who help out. The Third Tuesday sessions are a great place to talk to avid Louisiana iris growers and pick up tips on best growing practices and favorite varieties. Just bring gloves. Tools and water are provided.
The sale is no longer upcoming but rather past history. It was a successful sale despite the rain, and you can look forward to next year's event.
The sale is always in October. Watch this site for details. And, you can get on our mailing list by joining GNOIS or just emailing a request to us at email@example.com
The GNOIS sales are a great way to get new irises that are generally not available in commercial nurseries. Members donate excess plants and many of us grow a wide variety of Louisiana irises.
