 now i need to know just how to handle them. last year i got some and
 soaked them for a week and planted them in a pot full of potting soil
 and loal soil mixed. by mid summer the seeds were not there any more,
 either worms, or rot? did them in. now should i soak these or should i
 just put'm in the same kind of soil all the iris are going in?>>

Dennis, I've had seeds disappear on me, too, and often it has been birds 
coming up to the pots and pecking them out. Rodents could find them, too; 
mice like seeds. And I wonder about ants, sometimes. Rot is another 
possibility as well, although I would not expect you to loose every single 
one that way. So I don't think the soaking was the problem unless you let 
them soak entirely too long. But soaking is not necessary really, it just 
speeds things along. If you get any chill there you could just sow them in 
little pots of potting soil and leave them out somewhere where the elements 
can get to them and then wait for them to come up in the spring--protecting 
against their being eaten, of course.
