Now is the right time to dig and divide irises so round up the gang and get all irises dug up. Discard any diseased rhizomes and cut away insect damage on rhizomes. Wrap each in newspaper and store in a cool location till time to move. Once there, you can plant them if there is a place ready or wait till spring.
