best way to store rhizomes and how long?

kevindowd(7)March 8, 2009

I've been successfully growng irises in pots on my patio in NYC, but am moving and will have no place for them for at least a season, maybe 2.

If I dig them all up and store them, how long can I store them for? And what's the best procedure for doing so?

Need advice soon!

Thanks,

Kevin

Do you mean the spring and summer seasons, or do you mean for a growing season of a year or maybe two years?
