Irises for sale

 This page is split into two sections: Pacific Coast Iris, all other Iris. This is because the best time for splitting the different types varies.

1. Pacific Coast Iris

These are best dug and split in the Autumn after they have started into growth. Here in Lincolnshire this is end of September to early October. Plants are potted and allowed to settle and start root growth before I offer then for sale. This is usually mid November.

This is not the ideal time to market any plant, which may be one reason for them not being available commercially.

Pacific Coast Irises can be planted from their pots from November until Spring, in periods of favourable weather conditions.  Do not let the pots freeze if waiting for suitable weather, and when planting keep the root ball as intact as possible, don't try to split the iris further.

Some suppliers offer bare root plants at lifting time. My experience of trying to establish bare root PCIs is very poor, so I do not offer this option.
