GUEST,Auxiris Lyr Req: The Anti-Garden Song (Eric Kilburn) (23) RE: Lyr Req: inch by inch, weed by weed 04 May 00

Hello, everyone. Gypsy, I'd also like to say thank you for the tip about copper. I'd never heard that before and, while I don't like to use slug pellets, I didn't know what else to do, though I had heard that wood ashes work to some extent.

Peg, the best thing to do---though I know it's lots of work---is to wait until late June or so, dig up all the iris crowns, divide them and then dig up the entire flower bed before re-planting. Dividing the rhizomes will re-vitalise your irises and they will bloom better. Also, they will probably appreciate a dose of fertiliser that has an NPK balance of about 6-8-12 or 5-10-10 both after their blooming period and then again in March.

Thanks once again everyone.

cheers, Auxiris
