pile of iris bulbs
Hi - someone gave me a pile of iris bulbs that have been dug up for a while - all the leaves are dead. I live in upstate SC - should I plant the bulbs now, or store them till the spring? Also someone told me when I plant an iris bulb, that they like to have the top sticking up out of the dirt. Is it okay to mulch over the part sticking up or does it have to stick up out of the mulch too? Thanks for any input - I am new to bulbs.
