Hi Neil:
       I'm in zone 7 also, El Paso. . .Not the same but . . .  I use a 
non-soil mix of peat, vermiculite and perlite for virtually EVERYTHING. My 
iris do WONDERFUL in it, sending out strong roots quickly. The drainage is 
excellent but with that come fast dry-out. . The product I use is Pro-Mix - I 
don't know if it's available in your area but any professional quality 
soil-less mixture will work. I buy mine by the 3.8 cu ft. bail. I love the 
stuff! My seeds germinate and root up quickly, my house plants do too darn 
well! and the iris love it!

Doris Elevier, El Paso, TX Zone 7, AHS 9-10 Hot and dry. Rainfall so far this 
year -1.35 inches. (I think we're up to 2.5 inches!!)
