CULT: Building up sand

Very limited experience growing iris in sand, but that won't
stop me throwing in my 2 cents.  Ancient sandbox, set in the
ground serves as my intensive care unit, particularly useful
for rot-prone things.

You might want to try foliar feeding, since nutrients tend to
leach out of sandy soils quickly.  I've had no trouble with diluted
Miracle Gro, but seems like others have.  If you try it, start off
very diluted on replaceable ones and see how they like it.

I'd be interested to hear what works.
