how to store bearded irises til I move two months later

puttzyAugust 22, 2009

I live in Minnesota, but we 'winter' in New Mexico. We leave Minnesota right after Christmas. However, I cannot dig up my irises at that time due to frozen ground. My question...when I dig them up (probably in October), how do I store/protect them until I get to New Mexico? I will be able to plant them, as soon as we get there.

Dig, dry, keep in a cool, dark place until planting.
