Iris division

KeenOnGreenKeenOnGreen Posts: 1,790


Are the corms on this bearded Iris big enough to divide?  I have just separated some of a similar size, using a sharp knife. They had very substantial roots, and I've added some bonemeal and cut back the foliage. 


  • Probably the most important part of the division is depth of the fibrous roots underneath the tubers/corms. A test dig at the side will help uncover whether they're substantial enough to go ahead without killing 'em of.

    They certainly look good enough on the surface.
