Caution: Harmful if eaten. Dwarf Iris bulbs should be planted outdoors in October and November. Choose a sunny position in moist, free draining soil, and plant bulbs at a depth of approximately twice their height. Dwarf Iris look particularly eye-catching when grown as drifts in borders, or scattered throughout rockeries. For a really natural effect, cast the bulbs across the area and plant them where they land. Alternatively, plant bulbs in deep containers of loam based compost such as John Innes No. 2 and grow on in a greenhouse or on cool sunny windowsills.
Feed and water regularly throughout the growing season. When growing Iris, allow their foliage to die back naturally before removing it. This will help to feed the bulb and ensure another cheery display next spring. Divide overcrowded clumps of bulbs in autumn.
