Iris rhyzomes should be planted on top of the surface, anchored by their roots. The rhyzome needs to be baked by the summer sun to get the best flowering next season.
Diana Guy said you should ignore the advice on the label which tends to be very general. She said full sun was fine.
If you do dig any roots up, burn or bin, don't compost.
Not very much on the move this year?
Virus likely to look like horrid black leaves/blotches?
Trouble is the Lidl/Aldi staff don't know a weed from a flower, and I, for one, will regret losing my local nursery, who give all round value.
Not sure about getting played out, but saw some exciting new strains this week , recently bred and launched in this country. Loads of flower stems. Sorry but didn't catch the name, but will look out for them.
DG smothers hers with mushroom compost each summer, plus some BFB. I am not sure if mine are as good either. Perhaps last summer was not ideal for them?
I may see her again soon, so will ask for you if I can.
Hi Verd.... Diana Guy showed one called Croaticus... dark enough?
Moving after flowering is too early and risks loss. Wait until fully dormant in summer and before growth starts.
