Should I lift the iris
I found this Iris in a flowerbed when I cleared it when we moved in 4 years ago. I've nurtured it back to life, it has sprouted little irises too.
Last summer I realised the tuber was covered so I lifted it. Now I'm wondering if maybe I didn't lift it enough so should I do it again now. I have light sandy soil.
I only want to see what colour it is, if it isn't pink, purple or white it shall be donated to a friends garden, its the bain of my life trying to get it to flower. I'm not going to give up on it. I assume it would be showing signs of buds by now if this was going to be its year.
How do you plant them so the tuber is on the top but yet they are firmed into the soil?
Any advice gratefully received.
