no bloom I checke as you suggested...
I think since I am worried the pot might get too hot ..in the sun being it was bought in black
hard plastic...I think I will keep it all together as you said and plant it this weekend..
Not disturb roots and plant it just as it is in the pot..just dig the hole and set it down
at the level it was..I can not leave rhizones above ground as we do down south
because they are not above the soil in the pot, only one is showing ..
Will not put any deeper than I have to..
I had an extra pot of honky tonk and took it back to Lowes yesterday and the girl laughed
and said we throw them away in the garbage........
when returned..and I had tears come to my eyes, because I love animals, plants and old people
so I said well can I buy my plant back I just got refunded for and she said No.
So I asked for the store manager..and I could tell they thought I was a loo loo...
he came out and I said there is no use in throwing away a healthy pot of iris..
I am sorry but I have feelings for living t hings.....
so he said well we are required to throw it away and not resell any plant......
he was not going to let me rebuy the plant..then he saw that I was determined so he said
you can buy it back since you brought it in for the refund.....of it.
I guess that iris wanted to come home with me and live in sheri's healing flower garden!
thought you would enjoy that true story, as all of us who love plants..have feelings for them! Here is a squirrel eating his first strawberry..these were meant for the wild deer to eat... Sheri/sheridragonflys
