Summer Iris Grab Bag Sale At Presby

By on July 13, 2015

MyVeronaNJ-Presby-Garden-IrisThe Board of Trustees and Staff of the Essex County Presby Memorial Iris Gardens says that there is quite a bit of “editing” that needs to be done in the gardens before the 2016 American Iris Society Convention.

This means it will hold an iris grab bag sale this Friday and Saturday, July 17 and 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. both days. This event will be held rain or shine.

The sale is first come-first serve. Each bag will contain at least eight unidentified rhizomes for $20 per bag. Irises will be pulled from all over the garden so the bag will truly be a surprise. Pick up and purchase will be in the Bloom Room Gift Shop, which is also open for summer shopping.

The Essex County Presby Memorial Iris Gardens is located at 474 Upper Mountain Avenue in Upper Montclair.

Also on Saturday at 10 a.m. join the iris garden staff and learn how to divide your bearded iris and plant it correctly. The 1 hour class will focus on digging, separating, inspecting for pest and disease and replanting. Soil, water and fertilizer needs will also be discussed. Each participant will receive 1 free iris rhizome. There is a $20 fee. Class is limited to 20 people. Register online
