Hello, I am getting more and more enamored with iris. I didn't make crosses this year, but I have bee pods on a few stalks that I am letting mature. Could you tell me how long for them to bloom and what steps you take to plant them. Thanks

I know there was some threads last year on the steps. Let me look back to see if I can find them.

I went to the thread mentioned above and I am in awe. I knew there were some real heavyweight's here but I had no idea. I am sure I will reread that thread a few times. Nuggets of gold.
