Any advice on replanting the iris. I have never used them before. should I store the tubers over winter or replant into weed free bed.

Thanks for your reply water butts posted previous before reading yours.

I was hoping I could avoid this. But I know you are right!

I have just cut the geranium back to ground level as they had finished flowering/looked tired from dry weather. I don't know weather they will have second flush of flowers? So was thinking of doing it now, but I never give it a thought to leave it till the autumn.

I will lose all the geranium though as it would be impossile to do. Don't fancy the fine tooth comb option

both the geranium and the iris have grown and merge in together over the years. In other parts of the garden I have managed to dig up the roots but the iris tubers in this area make it difficult to do.

I have bought a house that has been left unoccupied for a long time. The garden was once lovely but sadly left to over grow. It's a cottage style garden with a mixture of shrubs and herbaceous perennials.  I started by cutting back hard last year and to my surprise it's come back great but I have a big problam with rye grass in the borders. Itr's perticully difficult to remove from an area with geraium wargrave and mixed iris. Is there anything I can do. I really do not want to dig the border up and start again.
