Best way to divide irises?


My iris bloomed beautifully this year! But now I need to concentrate on dividing them to ensure years of more beautiful blooms. What tips can you provide so my family can enjoy them for many more years to come. Thanks - Chuck -

    The best time to divide iris is late July to mid-August. Here is the link to the KSU Iris bulletin which contains detailed instructions on how to divide: http://www.hfrr.ksu.edu/doc3175.ashx.

    And this link is another bulletin from the JoCo Extension Master Gardeners: http://www.johnson.ksu.edu/DesktopModules/ViewDocument.aspx?DocumentID=6893

    Happy Fourth!
