tell me about giving away iris for postage
I'm getting rid of most of my iris. None are named varieties; most are passalong plants. I also have some "cemetery" iris that are going as well.
I read about cleaning and packaging them. Part of I want to know is (1) how many do you put per package and (2) how do you get the postage from people?
I know where the "cemetery" iris are, so can identify those. Actually, I have two groups of cemetery iris. One is taller and usually blooms about a week later than the short one. The blooms look pretty much the same and both are bullet proof. (I just have too many.)
I have another long bed that has three kinds of iris in it and I'm not sure where one starts and the other stops. There's a dark purple one, a lilac one and a white one with purple edges. Would you try to ID these for people or just say I have noids? (I don't want iris in this bed any longer.)
I hate to throw them away, but mailing them to people seems like it would be a real hassle, especially if you do the careful washing and drying that is suggested in a post I found.
If you've done it, was it that big a pain? What would be the easiest way to do it?
