Frequently Asked Questions:

When will I get my order? Shipments are made from the end of July to the end of August as this is the optimum time here to harvest and divide the irises. Early re-planting is recommended to ensure survival over the winter and flowering the following year. To be fair, the orders are dug and shipped in order of receipt so there may be a wait if there are a number of orders in front of yours.

What exactly do I receive? You will receive a single rhizome of each variety ordered which has approximately 4 to 5 inches of pruned back green foliage. Each rhizome has the variety name marked on it.

How will I get my order? We ship via Canada Post with tracking. If you wish to arrange to pick up your order in person you may make arrangements with us.
