How to tell if your iris is about to start a bloom stalk
So, if you're impatient like me, take a look at the bottom of your plants. I did today and was pleased to see a little bit of color there. That's the first indication that a bloom stalk is getting ready to grow. The next thing you'll be seeing will be the slight bulge as it begins, then after that, finally, blooms!
By the way, iris love water, so feel free to give them a drink anytime, especially here in Phoenix. I'm gonna go right now and mix up some Miracle-Gro in my big plastic watering can.
