GARDEN JOURNAL ** FALL PLANTING ** Iris Rhizomes

Iris Rhizomes ready for planting

Iris Rhizomes

I don’t usually plant non-edibles but often neighbors and friends ask me if I need or want something they have dug up because they have to many or they are doing garden remodeling. I really can’t say no and irises are lovely;  so today I planted a bunch of irises a neighbor gave me in a bed where I already had daffodils. It was perfect timing. The ground was still wet from the rain so the soil was easy to dig into and late summer is a great time to plant iris rhizomes. Iris rhizomes only get planted about four inches deep and they like to be well watered in.
