Re: Cutting Fans

About cutting back the fans on Irises, I used to only do it when I was 
transplanting them, although I have since been told that I should do it 
every year.
It not only reduces the chance of pests and diseases attacking them but 
it also lets the rhizomes get as much sun onto them as possible, and the 
cold in there to intiate flower production.
So I have been cutting mine back each year and they are all happy, and 
tapping thier little feet, so it isn't bad.
