keeping iris bed somewhat tidy
I recently bought a home and was lucky enough to inherit a bed of different colored bearded irises. It looks beautiful for the few weeks the irises are in bloom. I find, however, that it pretty much looks bad the whole rest of the year. I think this must be my fault as I am perhaps ignorant as to how to keep these plants looking somewhat tidy and what to cut or trim when. I know I probably need to divide the plants this year, even though I'm a little nervous I might ruin some of them.
Any tips of how to keep this bed looking nicer all year round?
