I live in Scottsdale, Arizona so temps are already in the 80's and 90's. What should I do to revive the new plants before I put them in the prepared bed??
Should I soak or spray for a bit before planting? Or just go for it.
They are mostly brown leaves and one green left. Stored in garage open on the ground with good air and nothing covering. Temps are in the 60's there all winter.

Welcome to ATP! Welcome!

I would plant them and keep them well watered until they start to grow.

@asforme Hi Mary....I found some iris in my garage a few weeks ago that I had somehow missed in the fall. I planted them and have kept them watered and they are sprouting. Don't know about the blooming part, but they are alive! Hope your hip issue is much better now Smiling
