Dwarf Iris

Hello everyone. Today Bob is taking a day off from the garden as I have to get all my hols done with before the end of this month so as Vicki has Mondays off I thought it a good day for me to take a holiday unfortunately her boss saw fit to have off the same day so Vicki has had to work but never mind.


Sue or maybe it was Martyn from
Green Lane Allotments asked me if I know the name of the Iris in the picture below.


Well if i remember right its called Katharine Hodgkin and we got it from Bloms Bulbs about 3 years ago. I've included a link to their website below where you will see they have several varieties of dwarf Iris. You actually treat them more as you would a bulb than a normal Iris as all their foliage dies down in a few weeks and there is nothing to be seen of them until next February/March time.

H Bob,
It was me that asked thanks for the comment on Martyn's blog.

Do any of the other mini irises reflower as apparently this can be a problem.
