They are a problem if they 'farm' aphids and also if they build nests in the bottom of pots. Ant bate stations are a good chemical way of getting rid of them

It sounds like they have wilted and perished, if they were still ok they would have recovered after being watered and removed from the heat.

Iris, tulips and grannies bonnets

Posted: 02/06/2014 at 16:12

Bearded iris can be divided after they have finished flowering, cut the flower stems down. The flowered stem on your 'grannies bonnets' can be cut down to the ground, sometimes the leaves develop mildew if the plants are a little dry, so the leaves can be cut back as they will grow again nice and healthy. Tulip leaves (and other bulbs) are left to die back usually for 6 weeks after flowering to feed the bulb before removing the tatty leaves.
