Correct me if i'm wrong but aren't iris sun lovers. I think my point is
being missed here and that is proper culture. What I have talked about,
rotating and solarization, are not just for the commercial grower. I
can send you various articles from leading flower magazines concerning
these topics for the HOME GARDNER.
Also my words were directed to those people who experience an abnormal
amount of rot. I am just presenting ideas to those who may need them.
These techniques work and are from my own experience.
And, many of my customers have used these techniques and are always
surprised at the results.
