Now that you mention potting up of these iris it sounds much like the plan
to follow. The more I think about it the more I like it. The plants
definitely will not put on any growth outside and will for sure be heaved up
out of the ground by the frosts later on... so yes, I will pot them and grow
them inside under the lights! Then come springtime outside they go!
Thanks. I will keep you all apprised on the progress.
