Re: CULT:speaking of leaf spot

Dorothy, do you use alfalfa pellets on your irises?   Walter Moores said that
he thought he got leaf spot from unburied
pellets.   I am inclined to agree because I had never seen leaf spot until I
bought a bag of alfalfa and spread it around my
irises several years ago.   Leaf spot showed up on quite a few of them.
After hearing what Walter said, I use it only underground.

I think that is true.   We have a lot of weeds and usually no or little leaf
spot.   But last year there was quite a bit of leaf spot where we had mulched
between iris rows with finely ground wood chips.
