I think your question about transplanting is a good one. I've always done it with the other TBs and resigned myself to losing a fall bloom on those, but I've also wondered if there is a better way, better timing. Since often the cold weather comes too soon in this country (NW Iowa) to allow rebloom anyway, it would be great if there were a way of bettering the chances by transplanting at a different time.
I notice, though, that your message seems to say that you have your rebloomers scattered among your other iris. From what I've read and been told, that isn't a good idea, because the rebloomers need some fertilization and irrigation (if it's dry) during the summer in order to encour-
age the rebloom in the fall, whereas other bearded iris as a rule don't need or want either one.
Somebody with more experience, enlighten us, please.
