Should hold you for now!!  

.would like input on the best way to prepare the soil and what it 
should include... Being in sandy soil, A train load of clay soil would 
be nice, but since you can't do that, add good composted manure and 
alfalfa pellets to the soil.  Do not add any other Nitrogen.   

What should the ph befor irises?    Good Ph for bearded is 7.0, but they 
will grow from 6.5 to 7.5.  Beardless is 6.5 and lower.    

.Do most bearded iris bloom the summer after they are planted?    
They should as long as you get them in before it is too late in the 
season.  Irises love "Virgin" soil and will generally do best the 1st 
Good luck, keep us posted!!
