I sent you separate message on this problem.  Where ever you got the irises,
if dealer is reasonable, should be willing to replace irises if they do not
grow.  As I said in other message, keep them shaded and well watered.  I find
regular garden soil is good, but others mix in peat and compost. Once growing
well, some well rotted or bagged dehydrated cow manure can be added.
