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!
