This is good advice for your BEARDED iris. However beardless iris
(your LAs for example) cannot be allowed to dry out. For the LAs I'd
suggest potting them up in a light mix (pine bark with 1/3 sand will
work) anytime after this years bloom and before your move. Keep the
pots moist, and feed regularly.
