Welcome to Meadowland Irises

Even with the cold of winter, we still have one or two irises blooming.  One little one …. Wanganui Gem MDB … blooms 3-4 times throughout the year and is always a welcome sight. 

Iris orders received now will be supplied later in the year once the irises have finished blooming.  The Medians can usually be posted from mid to late November.  We usually start posting out the tall bearded iris rhizomes from mid December onwards, depending on when they have bloomed.

The rhizomes will be sent bare-rooted and the cost will depend on the size of the order.  Every care will be taken in the preparation of your order but if a mistake should occur, please let us know.  Please refer to the Shipping page for further information.

Bearded Iris need at least half a day of sun and must have good drainage.  Plant in clumps for stunning effect.  They will thrive in most well drained garden soils. Please refer to the Care Sheet for further information.


The dahlias have all died back and we have left their dried cut stems on top of the plants in the garden to protect them over the winter.  The potted dahlias have been put under trees with the pot on its side till the weather warms up later in the year.

We are now taking Preorders for our Dahlias.  

PLEASE NOTE:  No payment is taken at this stage for Dahlia preorders.  Preorders are a reservation only, not a guaranteed order, as until they are dug in the Spring, we cannot be sure how many we will have available.  

We will invoice you in Spring, including postage, when the tubers are ready to be posted.

If you are interested in any that are showing SOLD OUT, please email me in case I have extras available once they are dug.
