I am moving across country in a couple weeks. I would like to take a few fans of my favorite daylillies and bearded iris with me.
It will take us 2 days to drive from Indianapolis to Las Crucis.
When should I dig up the fans and trim them? I have mailed plants before bare but not in the heat of summer.
Should I leave them bare and dry, bare wrapped in damp newspaper or replant them in pots in sand potting soil or peat moss?
Same questions about the bearded iris.
Also, after I get there should I plant in pots where they are shaded, part shaded or just plant them in the ground where they will stay?
Can I keep them alive a day or 2 before planting or do I need to get them planted first, then move my furniture in?
