I have a new garden apartment on Staten Island that actually has a garden.
It faces south and of course Iris are going to be the featured performers.
Right now it is quite overgrown with weeds and bushes, I don't imagine it
has ever been seriously cultivated. I have two questions:
1. Is there anything I can do now to prepare the soil for next spring?
2. Is it possible for me to have Iris blooms next spring (this spring)
without planting rizhomes right now; is it even possible to plant rhizomes
this late? Temperatures are already down to the mid 40's low 50's, winter is
nearly here. Thanks in advance for any ideas on the subject.
