    Ideas please for suitable companions to Flag Iris.

    You got it right first time, "M"! As KFF said above, Iris don't really like low-growing stuff shading their rhizomes and it increases the risk of them rotting in winter. So there's a clever girl!

    Vermiculite for seed sowing (baggy method) and mpc/perlite/vermiculite mix for growing on seedlings as it is easier to seperate. Vermiculite in most potted plants. Sharp sand were needed.
