    Almost all varieties of bearded irises are frost-resistant. But in the first winter, new plants still need to be covered. I cut the foliage at a height of 10-15 cm with a sharp pruner. I put spruce branches on top of the irises. I arrange wide wooden boards around the perimeter of the garden and fasten them together to make a box. I cover the structure with foil, press it on the sides with bricks. Now the "bearded men" are protected from getting wet during thaws.

    Sometimes mice climb under the shelter and eat irises, so I put dried branches of rosemary or peppermint in a wooden box right on the spruce branches. The specific aroma of these plants scares away rodents.
    Damp irises often get sick with bacteriosis, or soft rot.
    This ailment affects the growing parts of the rhizomes, where the flower stalks are laid. The affected specimens will have to be dug up, cut off the rhizomes to healthy tissue, disinfected in a solution of "Fundazol" (according to the instructions) and planted in a new place. In the area where the diseased flowers grew, it is better to sow marigold seeds.

    Bearded irises - a win-win
    I have a special love for irises - today the collection of these flowers on the site includes more than 300 varieties!
    For beginners, I recommend paying attention to bearded irises. They have an amazing flower structure - they look advantageous from any side. These plants do not need to be dug up for the winter, sheltered from frost, the bushes grow rapidly. And leaving will not take much time.
    In summer, the soil in the flower garden is loosened and weed from weeds.
    Bearded irises are drought-resistant, can do without watering for a long time. But if you want to extend the flowering period, water the flowers before and during flowering.
    To planting looked fresh and well-groomed, I cut wilted flowers daily.
    After 3-5 years, irises are divided and transplanted. This is best done in July after flowering. Many summer residents make a mistake - they deepen the delenki too much. I plant in such a way that the leaves are on the north side, the tops of the dividers are a third above the surface of the earth, and the roots are directed down and straightened.

    The distance between the delenki when planting depends on the variety of irises: for tall I leave at least 40 cm, and row spacing - 50 cm. If you plant more tightly, you will get a beautiful flower garden in a short time, but then you will have to thin out the plants often.

    I grew terry irises on the summer cottage and only recently found out that they are called bearded due to soft bristly outgrowths on the outer bent colored petals.

    I have high irises, although there are miniature and even curb varieties. Like beardless, bearded irises love the sun, but do not tolerate drafts and swampy soils.
    The root system of irises is developing actively, so 1 costs them to sit down once in 3. Better to do it after flowering or autumn.
    Bearded irises love feeding. Make them necessary before and after flowering. In early spring, the iris can be supplemented with potash fertilizer, and in the fall, add phosphoric to the soil (according to the instructions).

    All the florists are very fond of bearded irises, and among this class, for some reason, the greatest distribution was received by the representatives of the group High Bearded.

    But there are still bearded varieties related to the Intermedia group, and I, for example, like them the most. Their flowers are quite large, in no way inferior to the flowers of tall, and their peduncles are more resistant to wind. I will advise you such varieties: Russian - Carousel, Guest Savannah, Evil genius; Overseas Tantrum, Jump Start, Eye Wonder, Brickie, Imperative.

    Irises have subdued me not only beauty, but also a wonderful aroma.

    I prefer bearded - with a variety of forms and color inflorescences. So that they annually enjoy the blooming, once in 4, I certainly divide the grown bushes in August. If this procedure is postponed for another couple of years, the green mass of irises will develop normally, but the inflorescence will gradually begin to melt and eventually cease to appear at all.

    Operation "division"
    Before dividing, I shed a lot of soil around the bush. Then, with my forks, I gently dig it, remove it from the soil and wash it off the dirt. With a sharp clean knife, carefully cut the rhizome into single or double links. I cut off the dry and poorly developed roots, the rest I shorten to 6-7. See Cut off the leaves "on the scapula * to 17-20 cm, lower the rootlets for 20-30 min. in a solution of "Fundazol" or "Acrobat", then abundantly sprinkle them with sifted wood ash.
    I land on a sunny place.
    Under the digging I introduce 200-300 g of lime (the soil in our site is acidic), the floor of the humus bucket and 2 st.l. Superphosphate and potassium sulphate per sq.m.
    Holes are at a distance of 30-40 cm from each other.
    Carefully straighten the roots and fan leaves to the south, so that the bush subsequently develops evenly.
    Roots are sprinkled with soil, abundantly watered with constant water and mulch the ground with sawdust.

    In the autumn, be sure to cut the leaves of the irises in September, shorten them so that there remains a fan of leaves about 15 cm high. After that, spill the plants with a 1% solution of Bordeaux fluid, or even better - Fitosporin. The soil around the bushes should be abundantly sprinkled with ash. These measures are needed in order to protect plants from Fusarium.

    When the decoction of iris it can be transplanted or divided. Plant the plant, divide the rhizome into parts with several leaves and eyes. Cut the leaves to 1 / 3 heights. Cut the rhizomes with crushed charcoal. If you notice that the plant is affected by any infection, planting diapers soak in a strong solution of potassium permanganate or a solution of fungicide (Fundazol - 0,2%, Premis - 0,1%, etc.) for 1 hour.

    For a lush bloom of irises
    Iris is a plant that attracts everyone's attention, as its beautiful flowers look like huge multicolored butterflies. The neighbor always had a good blossom of irises, and mine had quite a few inflorescences. I decided to consult her. It turned out, the secret is simple! In the fall on the rhizome, you need to remove the upper kidney, then the sleeping buds will wake up. True, such irises bloom a little later, but much more abundantly.
