iris


great weather here in Iowa this week lower temps and humidity. we decided to dig up a 5 year old iris bed, remove all the weeds and volunteer plants and split up the rezones. took 4 days to dig and split them up, getting the bed ready for them to go back. glad when it's over it was a lot of work but I think it will be well worth it.

Wow Dave, that does sound like a lot of work. I know that my iris garden is in need of the same thing really soon also. Can't wait to see the beauty of the new re-planted beds that you did. Way to go.
