I am in need this summer to divide my bearded irises and I am hoping you can offer me some good tips on what I should do. Some of my questions:
I'm wondering if you clean the rhizomes before or after splitting? Do you use a mild bleach solution or straight water?
How long can the rhizomes be out of the ground safely?
How do you label them if you plan to share with others?
At what time of the summer is best to divide?
I haven't divided for some time and I need a refresher course to follow or your best of tips for a successful division. .
Appreciate your help,
