ANSWERED: Reviving old iris roots

Poland, IN

A collection of iris roots were dug up and left in an open bag since the winter of 2011, placed outdoors in a shed, and lost track of. They were my Aunt's and my Nana's before that. My Aunt developed pancreatic cancer and we lost her this January. I've just found the bag of iris roots. They are dry as bone. I've put them in a large draining pot outside, covered them with peat moss and saturated them with water. I thought I should kindof soak them for a week and then put them in a normal flower bed, partially exposed. Any chance they'll make it?
