Travelling Iris

We have recently been on a trip to England to see the family and before we went I noticed the Irises in my garden were about to bloom.  I picked all of the stems with their closed buds and wrapped them in damp newspaper then put them in a plastic water bottle with the top cut off.  Then I put the bottle in the fridge of the camper car where they stayed for 3 days till we arrived at our destination. In a jug in the sun they soon opened and gave us a lot of pleasure during our stay.
