I was given some iris and daylily bulbs that descended from my grandfather's plantings, essentially just dug up in mid October, thrown in a plastic bag, and transported from southern NY (zone 6) to central MA (zone 5).
I donÃ¢ÂÂt know anything about bulbs, but would very much like these to survive.
What should I do with them? Plant them now? Wait until spring? Divide them? Into how many parts? Do you wait for them to heal after dividing or just stick them in the ground? How deep do they get planted?
I thought you were supposed to wait until the leaves were dead before digging them up. (?)
