Hello to everyone here on the Iris Forum ,

My name is Patrick, and I am from New Jersey, and this is the first year I have grown an Iris
garden, so I am very excited, and looking forward to seeing my Iris bloom next Spring. I'm happy to be here and look forward to learning a lot of information here.

Hello Patrick. This site does have some duplication but it also has people who do not frequent the ATP site. I like this site as well so stick around. Sometimes when ATP starts buzzing with chatter it is hard to keep up. This site is more homey and still has all the iris info you could ever need or want. Welcome.

Hello to Susan, Marilyn, Dave, and Val and Thank You all for your warm "Welcome" to Cubits Iris Forum. I'm glad to be here, and look forward to some very inviting and interesting postings and threads about Iris and Iris growing. This is my first year at having not one, but two Iris gardens, so I am thrilled. I have grown Iris before, but usually only one or two rhizomes. Now, I have over 50 Historics growing in two gardens. I'm really excited about that. So far, the rhizomes are growing and doing very well. Look forward to chatting with all of you ! Thanks again .

Hi Patrick, iris gardening in Australia is much the same as in the States except the seasons are opposite to yours. Your irises are mostly finishing except for the rebloomers, and mine are just budding. We can't grow them in the North of the country because it's tropical, too hot and humid. I live in Victoria, which is in the South . I have about 200 irises, a small amount compared to some on this forum! Some of mine are in the ground and some in containers. The soil here is very poor, mostly sand and calcium with no nutrients. I am very close to the sea. So I have amended a lot of beds with compost and all the other good stuff. However, I need more beds for the irises, and I'm not allowed to steal any more of the lawn! Hence the containers, which are very large and the irises seem quite happy in them. I start new rhizomes in small pots, and move rhem up as they grow. I used to have a rose garden but now it's mostly irises, Spring bulbs and Dahlias. Lots of other assorted flowers here and there. I hope that gives you a picture!

You could slice lawn near the edges, bit by bit.
