Casual Observation

Bearded irises in pots really get off on not sharing their space with any other plants.  It’s a matter of dress codes, you see.   Or, in another language, THEY LIKE TO STAY WEEDED!

So why, then, do you have them in pots?   Surely you know that irises grow best on open ground.

I had them on open ground, but some years ago, voles nearly wiped them out.   So, the pots.   Cheap, 3- and 5-gallon nursery pots on raised beds.

Lots of luck, then.

I know.   The jury is still out.  See you in another five years!
