Dutch Iris Discovery

6

Please Note: Due to pre existing Quarantine laws we cannot send any bulbs to Western Australia and Tasmania. You may need to find bulb suppliers in your areas. Sorry we can't help you. 

Even the bare bulbs look elegant on this stunning flowers.
If you buy Dutch Iris from the florist, this is most likely your variety. 

There arent many flowers with such an intense purple blue. A taller bulb they reach around 70cm tall so best if you plant them behind other bulbs. Imagine the wonderful contrast of daffodils at the front and Blue Iris at the back. 

We have these growing along the sides of a little stream that meanders through the property and they faithfully popup again every year with very little care.

Watering Start watering when you see it sprouting above the ground. Keep the soil moist right until the foliage has finished and shrivelled down to ground level.  

Fertilising
Bulbs dont need food when they dormant (ie no shoots above ground as they are sleeping then) The important time to fertilise is when they start to sprout above ground. The best results can be attained from using a complete liquid fertiliser and water them with it every 2 weeks until they have finished flowering and died back down.

Late Spring.

After flowering care
As with all bulbs, DONT cut the folliage back until it has totally died off.

Very disapointed with the marketing. Product ok.

The product is good, ok I think too early to say. But the shopping experience wasnt. I purchased the product and the next week the prices dropped further. The company should have thought ahead abit and done something for repeat customers. Most of the irises had sprouted , so far so good.

Hi David, Sorry to see you were dissapointed. It was coming to the end of bulb planting season and we had to clear out the rest of our bulb stock hence the clearance sale. A lot of customers used it as an opportunity to buy extra bulbs to what they had already purchased. Brian :-)

Power planter - Dutch Iris Bulbs

I have planted 100 bulbs and several other plants using the power planter. It’s great, easy, and made light work on a project that once would have taken at least an hour, all finished in about 20 minutes.
