Dear Gardeners,
I've written a couple of requests for help with my Iris. So far I've not received an answer that I've found. I'm not sure about making a bed for the Iris. I have some old ones that bloomed once. I know that they need sunlight but I would think that they also need some type of food or fertilizer. Is this true? If I make up a bed how long does it take for them to start blooming. Last of all please let me know where to look for your answers. Thanks so much, a gal from Texas

See if you can read this...it lets you find specific forums of help! I am on a cellphone, so not surprised its upside down. Play with your mouse on everything you can! See where all the 'imbedded' places are leading. Chuckl, if it was assembled, it can be unassembled- go explore!

I can't read it. Blinking

Also in the upper left next to the person icon are two conversation boxes, hover your mouse over it, it says "Your Posts". I always forget about that one.

Um, Sue since Mary never got back to any of her previous posts, maybe you should Tree-Mail her your instructions? Shrug!

Giving her all these good suggestions and links doesn't help if she never sees them. Also if she doesn't answer Tree-Mail maybe Dave can alert her by e-mail?
