Tips for growing irises in your garden and companion planting are the topics of talks at four Randolph County libraries in May.
At the Asheboro Public Library, join Heather Haley, president of the Eastern North Carolina Iris Society, for “Irises in the Garden, a Month-by-Month Calendar,” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 25.
Haley will explore the relationship between iris growth cycles and common cultural practices. Members of the Iris Society will conduct live demonstrations, answer questions, and share tips and tricks for planting, digging and dividing the flowers in the Piedmont.
Attendees will receive a calendar describing irises in 15 horticultural classifications, expected bloom times in North Carolina, and month-by-month recommendations to help them thrive in the garden.
The Asheboro library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 336-318-6803.
