This is the first time that I'm digging up my bearded irises to divide, and I
noticed that some of them had little holes on on the bottom of the bulbs.
Should I dispose of these or are they okay to plant? Also, after dividing,
will I need to wait a year before I see flowers?
little holes? sounds like you might have small iris boarers starting to feed on
and drill into the iris, time to make a bucket of water with a cup or two of
bleach in it and wash the iris with it.
Small iris toes will need a year or two before they reach blooming size.
"In this universe the night was falling,the shadows were lengthening
towards an east that would not know another dawn.
But elsewhere the stars were still young and the light of morning
lingered: and along the path he once had followed, man would one day go
