HI all.. I need your help! I just found out that we need to relocate for my fiancs job and I am in frantic panic! We live in NJ and we need to move out of current house by December 4th. Well be in a temporary home (still in NJ) for about a month or so until we find our new house. Does anyone have an suggestions for bringing some of the following plants with me since they wont be able to be in a permanent location right away?

Irises - arilbred, Siberian and Japanese
Tulips since I will just dig up the bulbs do you think its ok if they sit in a brown bag for a month or so?? Im sure Id need to get them in by January.

Pot them up and keep roots damp, but not soggy. Heel containers in the ground to reduce root freezing. Mulch well when you plant them in their new home.
