Hi everyone! My water garden or gardens this year are going to have a water iris and pickerel rush growing out of them. My question is, how do you take care of them, and will they bloom the first year? My plan was to put them in 2 gallon pots of plain potting soil (not mix) with the tops of the pots above the water surface. I was going to fertilize monthly with two water lily tabs each. The first and last two months the water gardens are up, they will have a pop up greenhouse over them to extend the growing season, after which I will bury the pots in the ground to overwinter them. Thanks!
