Hi Helen, the best time to transplant well established irises is shortly after they bloom. Good luck!
Thank you! I will do it. I am not a gardener so your answer will be remeemered.
Hi Helen! Check out these helpful sites! Merry Christmas to you Helen.
Hi Helen. I'm Cindy. The best time to transplant Irises is late July thru September. Iris loves the heat and drier weather of summer. They also like moist soil. Once established, your iris plants will need to be divided. Late summer or early Fall are the best times for dividing them. Good luck Helen and Merry Christmas.
I will keep your advice. I am handicapped and use a raqmp and when they put it in they covered up a lovely row of the iris. Thank you.
Helen, You’ll know they need transplanted when the clump is not blooming as well, but still sending up leaves. Depending on my growing conditions, water, etc, I transplant every year to three years. I always keep some in the original spot and move a good bit to other sections of the yard. I’ve had some that absolutely loved being under one dogwood tree and did nothing under a dogwood thirty feet away. Good luck!
I will remember and thank you so much.
