Top Tips for Planting Iris Bulbs

Plant your Iris bulbs in a full sun position, in well drained soil. You can improve drainage by raking the top foot of the soil mixing in several inches of peat or compost.

Iris bulbs should be planted after the summer but before frost September is a prime time.

Plant your irises 4 inches apart and 4 inches deep.

Try and avoid air pockets by making a mound of soil at the bottom of the hole and positioning the bulb with the point facing upwards. Press the bulb down into the mound and then fill the rest of the hole. Water the area thoroughly.

When blooming is over leave the foliage alone as they will continue to nourish for next year. Foliage can be removed once the leaves have yellowed and died back.
