Connect the tops, and then place a sheet over the top of the wigwam. This method is superior to covering plants in plastic, because air can freely circulate, which prevents rotting.
Divide irises. To increase the number that you have, you need to take all your overgrown clumps and split them up. After the foliage dies, pick up bulbous irises. If you split the bulbs that you pull up, and replant them, they will bloom the following year. You should divide rhizomes using a knife. You can split the Rhizomes production by cutting off thin portions from the exterior and discarding the remaining insides. Don’t plant any pieces that don’t have any strong offshoots. Replant them immediately.
