I stumbled across SPCNI's Seed Sale by accident.  I wanted to revamp the
Aril Society website which was sorely outdated.  So my first thought was to
go look at all the other iris club websites for ideas.  That's when I found
it.  :-)  I'm planning to put ASI's seed sale online in 2013.

I really like how SIGNA opens up their seed sale to non-members after a few

I've tried PCNs several times, but never kept them going more than a year.
Maybe someday I'll get a greenhouse and be able to change all of that.....
