|Transported Iris Clumps. 9.3.14|
|Immortality, settled into place 9.3.14|
I moved the clumps as intact as possible. The soil was very dry. In their locations, somewhat crumbly, not like a brick.
Into bags, then to the new location.
Again, I used unamended soil to replace soil where the prior clumps had died, or were moved out.
Then cleaned out the weeds, cut off dead leaves, watered them in carefully, and sprayed the leaves with neem.
This is the one watering until nature provides.
I think it helps a lot to write the name on a couple of leaves, via sharpie. Less chance for mix-up.
Now they have copper labels too.
I also moved "Spiced Custard", which is not a historic iris, but I like. It did not have enough room. Now it does.
