I listened in on a conversation where a K-Mart customer asked an assistant 
if a similar packet of iris rhizomes where dead. The assistant said - 'No, 
they are dormant, they are always like that when you buy them. They will 
grow just fine'
I think they finally put them out on special when there was nothing left but 
dirt. I guess you could call them expensive little bags of well rotted 

I bought some decomposing dahlias for $1 (Aus) for 5 in a bag, and have 
happily had 4 come up. I am sure stores would get a much better following if 
they put their prices down just a little earlier.

Cheers, Jan Clark, in Aus
