PBS television had a show about irises. The radio gardener guy said to transplant irises in the fall.  The pbs show said to transplant them in July or August.  I wanted to transplant in August, but I waited because the guy on the radio was so insistent about transplanting them in the fall. 
The pbs show said not to mulch the bearded irises.  Well, mine are mulched.  I guess I'll go pull the mulch away.  That will be a big job.  It said to not fertilize them.  I've been fertilizing pretty regularly.  The greenery is wonderful on mine, but I didn't get much in the way of blooms.
About the only thing it looks like I did right was to keep the dead stalks and leaves picked off.
