Dried up Iris bulbs

katy122April 18, 2013

My friend this year dug up some iris bulbs from her garden, could have been as much as a month ago,she gave them to me to plant in my garden but they are so dry I am wondering if I should soak them in water for a couple days before planting or should I just toss them???

Give a good soak no more the 24 hours. Plant them and give them a good watering and wait. They are pretty tuff.
