I note that *iibyw* says he/she writes from "southeastern Idaho" 
which means the Pocatello-Montpelier-Idaho Falls general vacinity, a 
totally different climatic situation from that found in the rather 
mild Boise area in southwestern Idaho where majority of the Idaho 
iris growers are.  There's two to four thousand feet elevation 
difference, for one thing.

The one who posted also did not say whether it was iris.  The 
word used was "bulbs."  Tulips?  Lilies? Dutch Iris? or rhizomes of 
beardeds?  In any event, a move of the plants to fresh soil with more 
sun might be the ticket, but the area is very prone to spring frosts 
and late weather probems--compare the posts offered by the MT folks 
in a similar (but perhaps milder?) climate.  Just depends on where in 
southeastern ID the writer is.  Sounds like there might be a 
potential iris lover out there who could use some encouragement....
