Tauranga Iris Show 2013

I wasn’t able to get along to the Iris Show in Tauranga on Saturday – I’ve spent the past four days working for the Arts Festival delivering the Literary Programme, a terrific job if ever there was one but one that is all-consuming for those four days.

So thanks to BOP Iris Group secretary Jim Gilligan for getting in touch and passing on some results.

Champion Bearded Iris and Queen of the Show was Tiger Shark, grown by Cris Savage of Matua.

Due to a booking mix-up, this year’s show was for only one day – the 2014 show will be back to two days. And for the first time in a long time I will have the beginning of November free, hurrah!
