Listed below are a few resources that Region 7 clubs have found useful in running shows:|
Some clubs have rhizome sales in conjunction with their annual show or later in the summer. Sales or auctions vary among clubs. Read The Irisarian for alerts on many of these as well as your local club's newsletter.
Garden tours are often also a feature of regional spring meetings and an offering of some local clubs. These provide an opportunity to see gardens as well as sometimes to sample refreshments provided by members.
