Answer: You may be able to keep them successfully by storing them dry, dark and cool. Put them in a cardboard box in a single layer surrounded by dry shavings or peat moss and store at 40 to 45 degrees. Prior to storing, sort through them and discard any that show signs of mold or disease. You may also want to give them a dip into water/bleach solution, nine parts water and one part ordinary household bleach. Air dry, then store. Check them periodically and remove any that are rotting. If they begin to shrivel, mist them lightly with plain water, air dry the surface, and repack. Plant them in the garden next spring. Best of luck with your iris!
