The Q&A Archives: How long before I have to replant Iris?

Question: I have seperated rhizomes (spelling?) and then Ernesto paid us a visit. I have the pcs. in a bucket in my garage and want to know how long they will keep.
Thank you so much for this great service and your time.

Answer: The rhizomes will keep for quite a while if they are stored in a cool, dark, dry place. Put them in a single layer on a piece of newspaper or cardboard, and keep them in the shady garage until you are ready to plant. (I hope they are not in a bucket of water, this will make them rot.) Try to plant as soon as possible.
