I popped outside this grey winters Sunday to chop some wood and found the iris bulbs I’d dug up from where the new decking is now built. Shriek! They had sprouted and had become root tangled.
I hope they survive but am philosophical about their chances. They were in the ground for about 13 years so had multiplied a lot from the few I’d originally planted. After planting in a varying assortment of potting mix , compost and soil I popped them under the dormant plums and blueberry shrubs. I then watered them in well with a good seaweed based tonic.
