Iris beds

Yesterday I spent most of the morning digging a bed to put the irises into. Then in the afternoon I dug up 100 iris bulbs that were jammed together and replanted them in the bed I dug that morning. There are so many of the rhizomes in just that one bed. I’m estimating about 600 in that bed. That is just too much work to do every several years, especially because there are more beds like that- like at least 6 of them.
