Doris, where do you get the horticultural dye  you put in the Roundup?  That's an idea I want to try.

  I'm as organic as I can manage, I DO use commercial strength Roundup 
  judiciously around my iris, protecting them with a manila folder or piece of 
  cardboard as I spray. I also color my Roundup with a horticultural dye 
  (Purple/red) so I can clearly see where I've sprayed. I kept my beds 
  virtually weed free. . but that's not to say it has to be that extreme! I 
  kept my beds CLEAN. I "groomed" my iris every couple days. This kept me in 
  touch and aware with potential problems. . ..(and I think the iris like being 
  fussed with - I think they do better).
         I have always lightly mulched my beds with grass clippings. . I have 
  NEVER used any commercial fertilizer but again, that's not to say it 
  shouldn't be used. I'm just more comfortable with compost, "tea," and fish or 
  a sea-weed based fertilizer. 
         Hope this helps!!
