You wanna feed deer you can have mine!!!! I have 2 heards, males in one group (about 10-15), and a heard of does and babies (10+)........ I'm doing everything I can to discourage them!!!!!!

Here I keep their knees (Iris) showing. I always try to keep the top of the rhizome at the soils surface. If I need I always brush off any excess dirt. If they are planted too deep, there's a good chance they won't bloom. You don't have to worry about the rhiz. getting too much sun... Pix 1 shows an area to the right of the fence, it ended up being a new Iris g. bed. 4foot wide and 125 feet long. More than 300 plants... This should be a good year for bloom. Last season it was still filling in and had bloom on most and am hoping this year all do. (pix of last season is on the other computer). Other pix are some of the varieties that I have. Smells wonderful when they're in bloom!!!!!!
