Re: Re: Iris Borer

I move marker into  aisle  at same position it was in row, and after
burn, move it back. If I forget, plastic marker melt and aluminum ones
have paint all burnt off, allthough sometimes its still  readable. The
writing leaves a bit of a shadow on the bare aluminum. Holding it at
angle to light sometimes maks it readable. Far better to move them
before the burn

Chuck, how do you protect your Markers when you burn?

I burn foliage in spring, just as soon as foliage is dry enough to
burn. Plants may look awfull after burn, but  plants bounce back
quickly. I have a series of photos of Siberian iris spring burn,
showing foliage before burn, the burning,  after with the charded
remains, several of growth through the season, and plants in full bloom
 at proper time.  I also burn large TB clumps, same result. Not only
does it kill borers, but also weed seeds around plant, which are weed
free in spring where fire  extended.
