Q.How Can I Move My Iris From State To State?
I am moving from NH to NC. I have dug up and potted several varieties of my iris that I do not want to leave behind. I found out from movers that they can not legally move plants from state to state. Can i remove the iris from their pots, lay them down in a box of dirt and move them that way? A trojan horse move…lol. any suggestions?

You don't even need the dirt. You can remove the dirt and let the rhizomes dry out and store them in a box, with each variety separated by newspaper. I wouldn't cover the box, they need air. Here is more:
