|Now that your irises have finished flowering you can dig and transplant them. I shorten the foliage by about one half prior to digging. It makes them that much easier to handle and still provides enough foliage for the plant to collect and store energy. Don't completely remove the leaves until they die back on their own this fall. Best wishes with the move!
