Re: Cult: fertilization

Iris don't want lots of nitrogen, which makes for lots of leaves rather than
blossoms.  If you do fertilize, you need something having more phosphorus, or
at least an amount equal to the the nitrogen.  Something like superphosphate
or bonemeal, though the latter is slow acting. Or maybe a 5-6-6, the first
number being nitrogen, the second phosphorus, and the last one potassium.
The right thing for your soil might be different for here in Iowa, however, so
somebody in Arizona needs to advise you.  Francelle Edwards lives in Glendale,
AZ, and I'm sure she could advise.  She is a member of this list.  Francelle,
are you there?
