They are - they give me great pleasure. (I know the grass needs cutting! lol.)

What a lovely idea......

So lovely to see so many together.

Oh my! Best display so far this year Spritz!

Those colours do look pretty together Spritz - clever you!

Thank you - I love these little Irises, so I just decided to plant a whole lot together - there isn't anything else in the little bed so they don't get disturbed later in the year.

They had these at Clumber yesterday Spritz...3 in a pot for £3.........

beautiful spritz. hoping to do similar in the raised bed next to the pond when i get the rockery stone.

£3 is expensive. I sell pots of 3 for £1.20.

What an appallingly high price! Buy bulbs in September, Homebird. You could get 25 (or more) for that.

I remember you planting these Barbara , don't they look wonderful , yours are way ahead of mine I wonder if it's because mine are in the lawn it might take longer to push their way through ....... I bought a tray of 2 doz last year for £ 2 from the market they had finished flowering so they were happy to sell them off cheaply , I should have quite a display this year including the ones I already had ....

Oh, I do hope so - I'll be interested in knowing if they thrive in grass.

Oh they do thrive well Barbara they look so pretty , I have quite a large patch of different ones , we leave the grass until they have well and truly died down before cutting it .... they are slow this year compared to yours .. I can only see the green tips so far !

That's good. As you can tell from my photo, it's impossible for OH to cut the grass at the moment, so it's a bit like a field out there! I haven't tried Irises in grass, but maybe I will next autumn. :-)

Very pretty, how long do they flower for Spritz?:-)

1 Feb, 2012

 

Several weeks in all, Ba. :-)))

Good - you won't regret it. :-)))

Thanks, Kath. They need to be planted in clusters, or you don't get the impact. :-)))
