How To Plant Dwarf Iris For A Spectacular Spring Display

How To Plant Dwarf Iris

In this installment of our ‘How To Garden’ video series Michael Palmer AKA @mikethegardener shows us how to plant Dwarf Iris.  As you may or may not know November is a good time to plant Dwarf Iris (Iris Reticulata) to ensure a spectacular Spring display.  In this video you’ll learn how to clump the Dwarf Iris together to maximise the visual impact.  Mike will also show you how to plant Dwarf Iris to a specific depth and spacing to give them the best chance to thrive.

Michael is planting over 200 Dwarf Iris in the rockery. If you don’t want to go that far you can always plant them up in containers which would make a great addition to a patio or deck.  If you plant Dwarf iris in pots and put them in the greenhouse you will also be able to force them to flower much earlier on in the year and then bring them indoors for added plant interest. Just make sure you pick a pot suitable for indoors!
