Re: Move Iris In October

Good morning Janice,

I have successfully moved all bearded types in September in zone 3ish but I
don't know that I would try it in October.  Usually the ones that get moved
that late are replanted immediately and I would never do it with varieties
known to be more tender in the first place.

Just my experience in the cold zone.  :)
