National Collection Status Approved

We are delighted to report that the application for National Collection Status was approved by Plant Heritage in June 2015. We hope that this will raise the profile of Bryan Dodsworth’s Tall Bearded Irises collection within the gardening world and recognize his achievements as the most prominent twentieth century British Hybridiser of Tall Bearded Irises.

Several national collection holders of irises have provided support and encouragement. This is much appreciated.
