Prize Iris Rhizomes, Oh My!
This week, Nick Wright of Wright’s Organic Produce brings a wide spectrum of interesting orchard and garden produce. This Saturday only, he’ll offer prize iris rhizomes to beautify your flower garden for years to come. He plans to bring current blooms to show the color expected. And if you’re not an iris expert, he’ll gladly give you a tutorial on how to start with rhizomes – defined as horizontal, underground plant stems capable of producing the shoot and root systems of a new plant. And Nick offers more than flowers. This week he’ll also bring nutritious dried fruits, fresh-picked rhubarb, herb plants and grafted fruit trees. Those of us who brought home and planted Nick’s seed potatoes a couple of weeks ago are now watching our new potato plants sprout!
