	Just out of curiosity how much rain do you get annually?  Here we pray for
17", and without hail as long as I'm asking.
	I have never used horse manure, mainly because we got out of horses about
the same time we got into irises.  We do use a compost called Back to Earth
at 1/4 the recommended rate.  We have found that this layered with alfalfa
pellets works very well.  We also use bone meal under every CV when planted.
Last year was the first year we got everything together all at once and WOW
what a difference.

New to List - from the High Desert of Central Oregon - with a Zillion
1. The rows of iris I have in which was tilled a small amount of old
horse manure appear much healthier than those without; also used
alfalfa pellets, straw & triple superphosphate.  Other observations,
2.  In the High Desert we have excessive heaving; I'm finding
shredded straw deters this, along with holding moisture during the
hot periods of summer.  Any others with this experience???
3.  When rhizomes are `barely alive', would it be beneficial to dig
and plant in pots?
4.  Don't appear to have any leaf spot problems, but do have
botrytis; not much `mush', just spongy/woody; suggestions for sprays
and time of application appreciated.
Last but not least, after visiting the Willamette Valley, I was
feeling very discouraged (to the point of planting more sagebrush!!),
but now, having read of others' disappointment this year, I'll keep
