what it doesn't like is stiff, hard, dry, alkaline soil in full sun and prevailing wind. Just ask mine how it feels out there.

Iris problem

Posted: 08/01/2017 at 10:33

I think they're irises, I can see the rhizomes. Sisyrinchiums don't have those. 


Split and repot as Fairy says if you can't get them in the ground. Probably better split even if you put them in the ground

Yes, sow them and leave them cool, don't try and encourage them with heat.

I think I probably started with dry packet seed but it's so long ago I can't remember.

entirely true but you do have to be vigilant, if you let leaves grow at all they will photosynthesise

It's a hardy plant, possibly native. frost won't hurt it.

HELP! Specific moss I'm after

Do you think it was a real moss or one of the many plants that are called 'Something Moss'

true moss doesn't grow from seed, it has spores and wouldn't grow as you'd sow a packet of seeds.

If you're vigilant you will succeed. A plant can't live without leaves for photosynthesis
