Q.Bulbs Above Ground

Zone Pleasanton, Ks. | Anonymous added on April 20, 2021 | Answered

My iris’s were moved during a building of a carport. I thought I had lost them but found the bulbs & some green leaves on the bulbs that are not in the dirt. Can I transplant them or replant them now since they are out of the ground. I know it is not the season to transplant.

Yes, I would go ahead and plant them now. Be sure you let them die back all the way in the fall/winter before removing the leaves, so they can "feed" the rhizomes.
