Here is a recipe for alfalfa tea...12 cups of alfalfa pellets and 32 gallons
of water. Let steep for 4 days, stirring at least once a day. After 4 days
if you don't use it all up be sure to keep a tight lid on the trash can. It
will smell. IF, you want to, you can add a cup of 20-20-20 fertilizer. In my
iris border I put pellets on one half of the border and had huge growth,
both of flowers and foliage. I did keep the pellets off the rhizomes, I used
a whisk broom to sweep the rhizome. I realize when you have acres of iris
this is not feasible and it is best to work in the soil before planting
rhizomes in the area. Cyn
