Q.Bearded Iris Moving in April

robertocat1 added on April 14, 2011 | Answered

My bearded iris did not bloom last year and I think it is partly that they get too much shade now and partly that they need to be divided.
Unfortunately, due to where they are planted, I cannot get to them in the late summer (they are behind a huge rugosa rose against a wall).
If I move them now, when I can get at them and divide and replant, I assume I will lose all bloom for this year. But since they did not bloom last year, I really lose nothing. Should I replant now, or store in garage until later in summer? They are such a lovely color, I hate to lose them. Thanks in advance!

It should be ok to go ahead and replant them now to a more suitable location.
