Iris Update

May 27th, 2006

As I reported previously my irises hadn’t bloomed for a number of years and were not going dormant during the winter.

So what I did was give them all a haircut to try to simulate dormancy and well, either it worked or the irises finally stored up enough energy because they’re all blooming nicely now.

They are a little late this year, but so is everything else, at least 2 weeks later than last year I’d estimate. Our spring was warm, or so it seemed, but perhaps it wasn’t quite warm enough.

    So what sort of haircut did you give them?

    I basically took my hedge clips and cut them down to the ground back in Febuary or March or whenever it was.
