I need to take my irises out of the garden and store them for a few months.
I have done this before with bad results. I have tried taking them out and
"planting" them buckets of soil only to have them decimated by iris borers
( obviously the larvae were already there but the irises seem to survive
them better in the garden). I have also previously just let them be "naked"
in a shady dry place ( which only worked for the large ones. the little
ones died.) Any ideas how I can store them better?
Also, I acquired some summer bulbs too late to plant them this year. How do
I keep them safely until next year?
Thank you in advance,
