Divide… and Conquer
"Go Forth and Multiply"
"One Iris, Two Iris… Two Hundred-Twenty Five!"
The iris I planted less than three years ago are thriving.
I planted, at most, two dozen single rhizomes,
and they turned into this:
The iris are overtaking the tulip bed.
It is time to thin the ranks!
(Especially since I ordered tulip bulbs and will
need access to the bed to dig up the old and plant the new.)
Since I had created a nice, fluffy bed for the iris previously,
(Which may be one of the reasons why they prospered!)
It wasn't all that difficult to get them out of the ground.
The clumps of rhizomes looked happy and healthy!
I separated them. Threw 'mother' rhizomes out,
and trimmed the leaves.
225 iris plants. I counted them!
Care for an iris or ten?
Watch out day lilies…
you are next!
