Re: CULT: planting in pots

Pat, I plant my early arrivals in pots in the summer when it's too hot to plant in the garden.  Then I keep them in the shade of a tree.  When nights get cool, about the first of October, I plant them in the ground.

  Subject: [iris-talk] 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?
