Re: CULT: planting in pots

 Many of you have mentioned planting your more valuable iris in pots 
 when they first arrive.  That seems logical to move to sun when it 
 shifts or shelter from winds.  But doesn't that expose the plant more 
 to the weather in winter since the roots are closer to a surface? >>

I have done this because most orders arrive before optimal planting season.  
This allows them to develop good root systems instead of just drying up in 
storage and they hardly notice the transition when they are moved from pots 
to beds at the appropriate time in our fleeting fall.
