Garden Notes

Do you know what this is?    This is a hell of a lot of iris.

I had a day off today, so I tackled the iris bed.    They've been there about ten years now, so it was quite thick in there.     About an hour and half later, I had the above, nice and clear.

As you can see, I added some back at the front of the bed (the peas now being gone by), and I've covered the area where they were with a modified lasagna garden layering of newspaper and leaves.    I'll be leaving that there for the rest of the season before I decide what to do with the opened up space next year.

I do still have iris left.   They're curing the garage.    I'll reassess if I can add more in a few days, and give away the rest.
