I definitely do not want to take a lot of the old soil to the new bed. My
dad tells me that the soil he dumped into the barrels when we originally
planted the irises wasn't very good; he thinks that's one reason I've not
had many blooms. I think crowding must be another. I want to start over with
good well-prepared soil and the new spot will be sunnier, too. I just don't
think I'll be able to get someone in to do the job right away so I imagine
some of all of my rhizomes might have to be out of the ground for a bit.
I also think I should treat myself to some new ones...<G>
Since this is the iris-photos list here is a post-rain photo of my
???Struttin' High/Spanish Leather iris.
