On Tuesday, June 18th, from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon, members of the Greater New Orleans Iris Society and the Master Gardeners of Greater New Orleans will prepare an Iris Display Garden. The garden is being created in anticipation of the National Convention of the Society for Louisiana Irises to take place in New Orleans April 3 to 5, 2014. Help is needed to ensure that the irises will look their best. Participants will learn how to plant, deadhead, fertilize and maintain continued growth of Louisiana Irises.
The event is free and open to the public. Bring a hat, gloves, trowel, sunscreen and drinking water.
