Caring for Sibirian Iris

Plant Iris Sibirica in an open sunny position with good drainage. Plant the tubers in a good mixture of potting compost and sand. Keep them well watered for the first two or three weeks after planting. Apply some organic fertilizer during early spring. Flowering may take one extra season, as they need to get settled. Divide the plants (with a sharp knife or spade) about every third year in early autumn and replant immediately. They do well in borders but along a pond too as a water side plant.

How Plant Bearded iris

Bearded Iris are exceptional plants, they thrive almost on neglect and yet flower with spectacular flowers and decorative foliage. They are very easy to grow.

Soak the roots prior to planting for 12 hours. Plant in an open sunny position with good drainage. Plant the tubers only ¾ down so that the top of the bulb is exposed on the surface of the Soil. Cover the top lightly with pure sand. Keep them well watered for the first two or three weeks after planting. Apply some organic fertilizer during early spring. Flowering may take one extra season, as they need to get settled. Keep them well watered for the first 6-8 weeks after planting. Flowering may take one extra season, as they need to get settled.

Apply organic fertilizer and a thin layer of compost around the base of plants each spring and again after the blooms are gone but don't overfeed them!. To encourage a second bloom, cut the flower stalks close to the ground after the leaves have turned yellow.

Iris clumps can grow undisturbed for years, dividing being necessary when either the clumps become crowded or when vigor declines and blooms get smaller. Divide the plants (with a sharp knife or spade do not break or tear them) about every third year in early autumn and replant immediately. They do well in borders but along a pond too as a water side plant. (but not into the water!)
