Dividing Iris bulbs

All rhizomatous iris and true bulb types require dividing eventually to ensure strong growth as well as allow plants to multiply.

Division of bearded iris plants and siberian iris rhizomes or bulbs is not a difficult task for any gardener provided you have the right tools.

These newly created plants can be replanted in your own garden, planted in pots or given as gifts. Maybe even sold for a small profit, or donated to a school charity or other fundraising activity.

Iris are best divided after flowering, you will need a garden fork and a clean knife or pair of secatuers.
