Excellent question. I've read a lot about potting up irises, even TBs, on
the list, and wonder about them. I'd only pot up an iris if it were not
possible at all to plant it in the ground, or if for some reason it had to
be kept in the greenhouse for a while. But I recall reading about some
people on the list potting up TB rhizomes as soon as they arrive, and later
planting them in the ground. What gives? What are the circumstances under
which YOU would pot up an iris?
