#Irises Stopped Blooming? Here’s Why … #iris #flowers


Our Tinkerbell Irises have stopped blooming, and the reason is because Irises don’t like to be crowded. Irises multiply quickly, and if they get too crowded, they stop blooming. The secret to get them blooming again is to dig them up and divide them, as we demonstrate in the videos below. For beginner gardeners, the only challenging aspect of growing Irises is digging them up and dividing them. If you make a mistake, don’t worry. Irises are very durable and multiply consistently!

Irises don’t need to be fertilized or pruned. If they get 6 hours of full sun per day, they are happy! If the leaf tips get a little dry, then it’s time to water.
