Onco Iris Day
« on: January 13, 2009, 01:27:15 AM »
Just had a note from Tim Loe re the BIS Species Iris Group Oncocyclus special bulletin reprint. A number of possibilities as to the content and format of the reprint to be decided.
Tim also mentioned his Onco Iris Day on 10th May. Oh if only I was a whole lot closer!!!

Pat, can you give a bit more detail and explanation for those of us not "in the know" about  such things..... I.E. What is the BIS ?
Talk of a leaflet... only available to members or to other interested parties? If so,  where to apply ( those details to come later, I presume, if the matter is under discussion now)

 Who is Tim Loe, please?
Where is he... and is this Iris day again a Open Day for the members of a society or an OPEN Open Day??

Thanks, M

Uhm I have been lax in giving details haven't I?
Yes BIS is the British Iris Society - there is a group within that group that is interested in species irises.
The Spring Bulletin 2007 of the specialist species group was a special publication on Oncocyclus which was full of information and colour - reprint of most of the oncocyclus articles in past BIS Yearbooks. Articles on oncocyclus irises in their native habitat.
Tim Loe is the editor of this publication plus he is a nurseryman who supplies many bulbous plants - he has a fabulous catalogue of rare bulbs.

I had asked Tim if he could republish the bulletin as there is many members of the ASI who would buy a copy. There is now decisions to be made whether to republish as is; add more articles and improve the quality of the prints and publish as a soft cover or hard cover.
As to the Open Day I am not sure now whether it is open to the public or only to the BIS members. Uhm I had presumed (should never do that!) that it would be open to all.
I think I have answered all.

Thanks Pat,
very interesting information - if it should be an 'open' Open day - do you know where it will be? In Launceston, Cornwall ?

I have just received a catalogue from Westonbirt Plants and with it Tony Dickerson enclosed a poster advertising a BIS Species Group day entitled 'Oncocyclus - From Israel to Japan'. This is on Sunday 10 May at WISLEY GARDENS in Surrey. It is open to all and tickets, for non-members, are 12 from tonydickerson@rhs.org.uk.
I can give a little more information from the poster if you wish but would suggest that an e-mail to Tony would be better.
