Question: 1109-1514
It has quickly turned hot and my irises have about three inches of rust at the tops. Can I cut them now? George, Boaz, AL

Mort's Answer:
Most of the country has experienced a cold wet winter. Fungi are running rampant as snow and frost melt. Cut them down to two inches from the ground. Dust with Bordeaux mix and replant them with a sandy soil mix. Irises should be split every three years anyway. This will make them more prolific.
