If they awarded Michelin Stars for Bumblebeee restaurants your garden would be there on the list - amazing displays.  How long has it taken for the Iris to establish that density?

Thanks.  The iris were planted at this place in 2000.  It took maybe 5 years to reach this density.  However, this year they will be no help for the bumblebees as the flowers are eaten by the slugs.  Never seen before…  They blossomed last week and since then the weather is really wet over here.
