The English Iris Company is delighted to be involved with Doddington Hall Bearded Iris Week from 31st May to 7th June 2015.
Visit the new Display Bed that features a collection of Bearded Irises raised by Bryan Dodsworth, the most celebrated twentieth century British hybridiser. Irises can be viewed at Doddington and purchased via our online shop.
In one of the highlights of the Doddington Bearded Iris Week, Doddington Hall arranges a spectacular Iris Day on 4th June 2015 that will appeal to the novice and specialist alike.
David Logan, Doddington’s experienced and enthusiastic Head Gardener leads tours of the Doddington Iris Garden and Simon Dodsworth, Bryan’s son, gives a talk about his father and his approach to hybridising.
Check the video below for further information on Doddington Bearded Iris Week, some great images. This is a chance to learn more about Bryan Dodsworth’s irises and the Display Bed at Doddington.
Barry Emmerson, Bryan’s pupil for twenty years, offers a master-class in iris appreciation. He uses the Dodsworth irises in the Display Bed, with a practical demonstration of hybridising techniques. This promises to be a fascinating and informative day for iris lovers and keen gardeners.
