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!!
