Re: CULT: strange storage


I have to redo my front SDB bed that also has TBs in it because it's impossibly weedy/grassy. When I dig the irises they will go in bags each with its label so they can be replanted right away this summer. I might use plastic because I have more of it, but paper would probably keep them cooler.

I've only done it when moving. In fact I've still got some seedling rhizomes to plant out that have been stored for more than 6 months. They are alll still viable. But I wouldn't do it unless necessary (moving house, preparing new beds etc) Can't think why anyone would bother unless they had to.

This is a blog from SpringHill.  Read all the way down.  In the 56 years I've raised irises, I've never heard of lifting and storing iris rhizomes in paper bags.  Anyone else?
