<<  have 2 questions about weed control. Does anyone know if it is safe to 
 use a preemergent, like Dacthal, in an iris bed?  Also, I am thinking of 
 broadcasting the white Dutch clover in the iris bed for suppression of 
 weedy grasses. Has anyone ever tried this, or see any reason not to 
 do it?  Many thanks, Judy Sylvester zone 5

Dacthal is OK, but trial it first on something that you don't care about as
soil conditions can alter the results of using pre-emergents over crops.
Can't say about the dutch clover - this is something I've never contemplated.
