If you are in this area you know how wet and soggy the weather has been. It is like a Turkish bath out there right now! These (very crowded) iris are getting those little mold spots on them and I decided I HAD to thin them out. Now I have a big pile (100 or so) that I would love to see someone take. I have cut them into fans (as the spots need to be cut off) and they are ready to plant.
Everything I read on the web says that as long as the rhizomes are firm and full (and they are) you just need to trim off the leaves with spots (which I have done).

If you are interested, I am in Dunwoody, and you can reach me by email - you have to decipher this as I really HATE the spam bots - as sterhill at comcast dot net.
