Dwarf winter flowering irises are perfect for growing in pots. The bulbs are easy to cultivate, and growing them in containers means their intricately marked flowers and delicate fragrance can be enjoyed more readily than when they are grown in the garden.
Plant up the pots in October and leave them outside until the leaf tips start to poke through the soil. Then bring them indoors to speed up the flowering process – you’ll have blooms in the depths of winter.
