Guidelines for Iris Orders

From: Vicki Craig <craigiris@earthlink.net>

1. Keep a copy of each order

2.  If you do not receive the plants you ordered you should immediately
contact supplier and notify them.

3.  The  reputable supplier will send you the correct order and allow
you to keep the ones you had received in error.

4. Always inspect the rhizomes before planting. Then you will know they
are sound.

5. If you live in areas of high humidity, high temperatures, you may
want the wait 2-3 weeks or more before planting the rhizomes if they
have come from the west.
The Pacific Coast climate seems to favor larger more succulent
rhizomes.  These
may tend to rot if you live where the summers are quite humid and where
thunderstorms saturate the ground.  If you soil is heavy and/or the
drainage poor, your iris may rot. Learn the cultural requirements of the
particular iris you have purchased. The Pacific Coast areas have dry
and lower humidity.

6. If you love iris,  join the American Iris Society and your area
group.  The cost is very minimal and AIS has much to offer for Iris

Would welcome any additional ideas to add to these guidelines.
