A friend who doesn't have any gardening experience has given me some Dutch iris bulbs - 100 of them! From what i've read, they aren't reliably hardy here, and they should be planted in the fall (how come Costco is selling them in the spring, then?). I don't have anywhere to keep them cool, so i will probably have to plant them now. They can go in the garden in the southwest corner of the house and might do okay there, but i wonder how they will do being spring-planted.
Any comments or suggestions?
