New Iris Bed

 To all for advice,

I will be tilling a new iris bed for TBs that I will be receiving in July.
Since I am new to the iris, I would like to know if tilling in WELL
composted horse manure from our local barn would be beneficial or will it be
too rich?  I will also be adding well screened compost.

Clarence:  I received a wonderful order from you last year. (TBs & Sibs)
Unfortunately, the day after I planted them,  our new puppy dug them all up,
including the labels.  That left me without a clue as to what was what.  I
had planned to go out that day and map everything on paper.  Maybe someday,
when I take my pictures of them when they bloom, you can help me identify
them.  I still have your last year's price list with items highlighted, but
I know I didn't get them all.  I'll just check the descriptions and try to
match them up.  You may recall my phone call to you earlier this spring.

Thanks for the advice.
