Iris Planting with @Omasgarden
Oma's Steps For Transplanting Your Irises:
- Consider that they have a very shallow root system so use a tool if you need to loosen them from the soil but use a hand tool to remove them from the dirt.
- Lift all of those roots up, along with the full rhizomes if possible so that they have the best chance possible of surviving.
- Separate them as well - gently pull the child from the mother plant. This way you get more flowers and more plants.
- Move them as soon as you can into their new home, they don't want to sit out for too long
- Plant them about 2-3 inches deep, just like you found them. They like to sit right on the surface of the soil
- Water it in with a gentle stream
- Wash off your Western Chief gardening clogs or boots and enjoy!
