Planting Dutch Iris Bulbs

Plant your Dutch Iris bulbs in the Autumn at the same time as you would plant Tulips and Daffodils. They are an easy bulb to grow, but they prefer well drained soil and will do best in a spot where they are in sun for most of the day. They are best sheltered from the wind as the flowers can be top heavy. Unlike other types of iris that grow from thickened roots called rhizomes or corms, Dutch iris grow from teardrop-shaped bulbs.

Dig holes and plant your iris bulbs, 4-5″ deep and 3″ apart with the pointed end up. Water thoroughly after planting, soaking the soil to settle it around them.

In warmer areas, the foliage might form in the Autumn, with winter bringing taller growth, and flowers will develop in the Spring. In colder areas, foliage and flowers will wait until Winter has passed and will grow in the Spring.

Leave the foliage in place once they have finished flowering, the leaves are needed to send goodness back into the iris bulbs for the following year. Remove the foliage in the Summer, when it turns yellow and dies back as this is when the plant will become dormant. Iris Bulbs are fully hardy and can stay outdoors in their planted positions without any frost protection.
