Existing bearded iris beds after a spring transplanting
Hello, What will happen to the irises in an existing bed if I thin them out now. I know that it is better to do this after they have bloomed in August or September and I know any transplants may not bloom this year but the bed looks terrible and it is right beside my door where we come in and out. I live in delaware and I know we may not have had our last frost yet, but now is the only time I will be able to do this. If I protect them from the frost(if we have anymore) will I still get blooms from the existing bed or will I end up killing everything including any transplants. Thanks for any advice.
