Plant Iris so that the rhizome sits just at the soil surface. Planting too deeply may cause the rhizome to rot. When fully rooted into pots, transplant into borders outdoors. Choose a sunny position in well drained soil where the rhizomes will not be shaded by other plants. Amend heavy clay soils with plenty of grit and well rotted manure prior to planting. Firm the plant into the ground and water well to settle the soil.
Water regularly until fully established. Divide overcrowded clumps of irises in late summer after flowering, to maintain their vigour. Avoid mulching to prevent them from rotting.
