Hi all,
Hope this doesn't seem to contrary but all the big commercial growers cut
their iris while they are digging them.  They do this by using the
equivalent to a lawn mower underneath the tractor.  Very sharp blades.  I
know personally that there is just no other efficient way to do this.  It
would take way, way to long to trim everything by hand.  We dig and trim all
orders by hand but when it comes to the fall digging and replanting
everything comes up by tractor and cutter.  Never have a problem with
disease or rot, don't think Schreiner's or Cooley's has either.
