Quick question, if I may... is it still an acceptable time of year in the UK to be transplanting garden bearded irises please? :)

I can't  advise  properly, Bart, since  I don't  grow  any  of these   - but  my  feeling is that it  is a  bit  late - unless you  were to get  a  prolonged  warmer  spell to let  them make  some  new  roots  before  winter - and  wherever  you  are  in the  UK, that seems  a  bit  unlikely.    Hope  someone  with  more  experience of them in the  UK   can help out.

I prefer to transplant in the spring, so that they have time to take root before winter.
 that said, I have always had losses when transplanting iris seedlings ...
 I tell myself that for each species, you have to watch for the moment when it starts their new shoots with new roots.
but I am not an expert ...

I am still searching

TBI 'Amassadeur' or 'Alcazar' or 'Bruno'?
I was convinced that this was 'Ambassadeur' but recently saw a pic of Bruno https://www.historiciris.org/listings/bruno/
and now I'm not so sure! :-\
