How to plant mini-irises

Plant up pots of delightful scented miniature iris bulbs in autumn, to flower early in spring.

Miniature irises are perfect for growing in pots and make attractive table-top features. There are several cultivars of Iris reticulata, danfordiae or histroides to choose from. When they flower, keep them outside but place them somewhere you can appreciate their lovely form and delicate scent.

After flowering, give the bulbs a potash feed before they die back to strengthen them for next year.
