When to move irises
I have some irises in the corner of my backyard and I want to move them because the location they are at right now has dock over there and last year my irises never bloomed because of the dock. When should I move the irises? I was thinking about making a flower box or a raised flower bed to put them in but I don't know what wood to use or what to do. I would love to be able to see them bloom this year. Please Help!

I've been told that you move Irises after they have bloomed. So that means you will not see them for another year.
Iris are best moved in the fall, after the foliage has died back. The foliage stores nutrients and strength for the next year's blossoms and growth.
