Re: CULT: Burning worries?

Kelly I don't think you have killed any iris or perennial weeds and grasses.
I have helped a friend burn the last two years. The fire got hot enough to
melt aluminum labels.

I think it would be best to burn before growth has started. Burning when you
have new leaves could retard growth and bloom. Should kill a lot of borer
eggs. It will make it easer to weed what is left.
