Don't know how you call them in America, but there
are chemicals you can spay that prevent the weeds from germinating.
Don't know if they are 100% safe for the newts,
frogs, and other little friends, but they sure help me from slaving
hours on my knees!
i know they get banned regularly, but they always
seem to come up with a new one.

Subject: [iris-photos] What happens when
you are away during the weed growing season
Hi iris lovers,
Here are some pictures of what we were
confronted with after our late summer vacation. As we live in the wonderful
Pacific Northwest, mainly Oregon, and have beautiful deep sandy loam soil, we
grow weeds about as good as anywhere. I am sending you a sample of what I have
been confronted with.
