Sweet dreams Dd ((hugs))

Who's the culprit?

I agree - adult vine weevils. Use nematodes next year as soon as the soil is warm enough. It worked here

The GW edition that came from a beautiful garden with lots of water iris - the owners said they always used garden soil.

If you bought named variety seeds from a reputable seed company then you will have what it says on the label (barring very unusual mishaps in the packaging department).


However, if you bought seeds from someone unknown on eBay, then they could be anything.

I use either aquatic compost if I have it, or poor garden soil with added grit.  


Don't add peat - it will float on the surface, and don't add any fertilizers - pond plants don't need it and it will cause algae in the pond .
