Bearded Irises: some history, some people, some plants                                               

Alun and Jill are local speakers with a 3-acre garden, Aulden Farm, that opens for the National Garden Scheme. Although they no longer have a nursery their interest in plants remains as strong as ever. Both are active members of the British Iris Society and have a special fondness for irises in all their forms with their bedazzling array of patterns and colours.
