RE: ANyone growing bearded iris in pots in San Jose?

Short answer is no. But I do grow tiger lillies and calla lillies in pots on a west=facing balcony in Santa Fe. I followed the info given me by the bulb people at the nursery where I bought the bulbs and what was in the Sunset Gardening Book and they did just fine -- so much so that I intend to plant more. Good luck . . . jo
