Drying fall planted bulbs

Maybe I wasn’t clear on my order sheet or maybe Gurneys was testing me.  Either way I received 30 dwarf iris,  Iris reticulata, as part of my spring order.

I thought I was supposed to plant right away thinking I was getting Iris but Dwarf Iris is actually a spring blooming plant to be planted in fall.

So soaking the bulbs was NOT a good idea!

I have since begun to dry them out in the basement and will store them there once I’m done.
