Re: Re:CULT: Leaf Spot

Cute story Anner. Amazing what might have been considered expert observation
in 1927 regarding borer control. I believe Neil's message and a few before
were about leaf spot and trimming foliage. Please allow me to restate my
added comments to his sage advice....if you feel the need to cut off all
foliage in a large area, use a clean instrument. And regarding burning,
personally I prefer the torch on ground adjacent to and around iris clumps
in the Spring when it starts to warm a bit. It in no way resembles the
technique you described.
