|I hear you about the heat! Was working outside until it got too toasty for me. Moved inside to start a project that appears to have no end. I'm considering moving my iris this year as well. They did not do well in the beds I placed them in a few years back. Although, at that point, I had so many I was giving them away! Cycles. This gardening world is all about cycles.

|Hi Nona, with my Iris, I'm finding they do best in drier locations with mostly sun. I know they say to plant them shallow, but I've found that if I cover the rhizhomes, I don't have as much trouble with iris borer (which nearly wiped out my iris about 10 years ago). I'm so thru with this heat!
The end is nothing, the journey is all.
