Iris location

Iris locationWith Iris plants you have to be particularly careful because, since there are several different species, each one has specific needs and characteristics which make them less or more adaptable to different situations. Some can resist during low temperature seasons, others need warmer weather. These plants should be placed in places which are protected from air flow with slight sun exposition and some hours of shades. The soil as well should be specific for each kind of Iris, and humidity level depends on the environment your Iris will find in your area. The draining capacity of the soil is fundamental, no water stagnation should be present. When you prepare the soil where the plants will stay, always remember to create the ideal drainage with some clay but not too much because they should be kept moist and never dry.

    Iris care

    Iris care The difference between bulb Iris and root stock Iris is basic when you have to plant your Iris because they need different attentions. Root stocks have to be place not so deep in the ground, whereas bulbs should be deep and placed in specific periods of the year. Watering too much can ruin the bulbs and water stagnation can be harmful in any case. Exotic species may need more water and European a little less. Trimming is related to what you would like your plant to look like, and you will only have to remove damaged parts.

    Iris maintenance

    Iris do not have particular enemies or specific diseases affecting them, but of course they do not have immunity. A constant prevention is mandatory and necessary to avoid mold, without exaggerating with water from irrigation. Mind the fact that, the brighter the color of the Iris, the more care you should use while growing them. As for many other plants, it is not a matter of which specific parasites they could attract but how good we are in taking care of the plant so that it does not do it. Prevention is the best way to keep disease away from these particular flowers.
