I hope to grow lots of irises this year, They are one of my favourite flowers and I dont think deer eat them, This is especially important as a pair of deer seem to have taken up residence in our garden. My first purchase of the year was an Algerian Iris bought at the Hardy Plant Society February meeting

Iris reticulata are always one of the first signs of spring,

Iris reticulata

I would also like to grow Tigridia again. I grew them in pots on the patio in the 1990s when we had a spell of hot summers and mild winters and they self seeded in the patio cracks, They have all disappeared so hope to be successful with new bulbs
