Hi Ann and Ellen,
Ann, We have over a half acre in iris and it is broken up into three
different areas on our 1 2/3rd acre. I don't think chicken wire would
work. Ellen, I think the gophers are unaffected to any poison in the
rhizomes. They have destroyed several iris so far this year and nearly
wiped out one large section of our garden last year when Jim was so
So hopefully, someone will have another suggestion. Oh, yes we have
tried the traps, too.
