OT:garden hygiene

From: Gordon & Loraine Nicholson <iris4u@pacbell.net>

Hello All, just a note about insect control, can't agree more that Less
is better then More when it comes to spray, but have to disagree on
"burning" of garden litter.  In many parts of California burning is
totally restricted especially in towns.  We can burn here in the country
with a burn permit, but it is very limited and does not include garden
litter, and only on certain days, certain times and all have to be okay
on day in question. We tend about 35,000 iris plants and we do work at
not using sprays, notice I said we work at it.  We use surflan,
something for leaf spot when needed.  We use watered down kitchen soap
for aphids, BUT we do use spray on mosquites, ants and spiders. 
Lorraine in Central California where Frost was out again this a.m. and
now it is sunny, windy and cold.

We are proud as punch of our new web site!
