The new iris bed I worked on last weekend. The bed isn’t too new. We installed it earlier this year but planted it with annuals. I transplanted most of those to hanging baskets to make room for these irises. A lot of of our newer irises did not bloom this year. I read that if they are put into established beds they compete with older plants for nutrients and may not bloom. So, I transplanted a lot of them to their own bed. “Stick to your own kind, one of your own kind…” Lets hope they are happy and will bloom next year!
