    Should I add soil to cover bulbs that have surfaced or do I need to dig them up and plant them deeper?

      If just the backs of the Iris show then they should be fine. If you live in a super cold winter area then go ahead and cover them with a very thin layer of soil. The easiest way to kill Iris is the plant them too deep.

    some of mine have grown out over the top of my concrete sidewalk--what to do with that?

    no---the tubers are actually growing on top of the concrete and believe it or not do bloom--just not were I'd want them
