Iris rhizome or plant?

Posted: 03/09/2016 at 15:15

Iris sibirica don't have rhizomes like bearded iris, they have roots that can be divided. But don't try and break them up into very small divisions or they'll take ages to get going again. 


£4 doesn't sound too bad to me or wait and buy them in growth in spring.

That's beautiful Fairy. If mine looked like that I would be overjoyed. 


You learn what the local soil and conditions are like over the years, I wouldn't choose a rowan for my patch now.

Rowans always look much better up your way than they do here Fairy. I haven't got brown berries but plenty of brown leaves. Our soil is very dry and rainfall is very low most years, not so low this year and the rowan is better than usual. Berries have usually gone (eaten before ripe or dropped off) by now.

I hate complacent 'know it alls' who are dismissive and sneering towards others and their views.


and people who go out of their way to create controversy rather than discussion.



But I don't have to see it, the site has the technology to keep my forum cheery

What plant is this?

Don't hesitate to ask any question here Colin. There's usually someone with an answer


Someone will answer the feeding question but I don't grow things in pots long term so I don't know.

Very real Richard.


btw, I'm having great success with some of tour seeds and seedlings. Some are only ones or twos, baldwinii and ?Wedding Anniversary, might not be exactly the name, Twinkle's babies and songarica in number.  Thank you for all those.


Vince Denny cuttings and cartmannii seeds from other sources doing well also. It will be a clem-fest here soon.
