Re: Re: CULT:pests

I'm in Calgary, so it's dry as a bone here - no humidity problems. If you have iris borers in Quebec, I would have expected to have them here. Then again, we have no fleas either - the altitude Ior something. Irises don't have much of a problem here at all, except for the wind and hail! We get lots of those...

Where do you live ? I think leaf spot is caused or encouraged by
excessive humidity but I can't be sure. As for borers, these a moth
larva that hatch and bore into the rhizome of the Iris and cause the
entire plant to die. In my case, the borers, possibly due to late
hatching, get into the stalk and eatthe blooms as the stalk grows.
They destroy all but a few blooms. I will no longer buy or seriously
grow Irises in the future because of this until a pesticide become
