oops *Blush* I didn't get all my spring bulbs planted last fall and I have some iris reticulata 'Cantab'. Some sprouted in the cold room so I think they'll be ok Smiling but some didn't and are a little dry. Should I soak the drier ones overnight before potting them up? Thanks muchly in advance.

If you're potting them in a container, I would think the moist soil would be enough. The reticulatas don't like being wet.
