Re: OT-Bio Bob & Sandra

Hi Kitty,

Thanks for telling me what this is.  So a fungus causes the brown spots.  So
it hides in the soil and can be air bourne.  That explains how it can spread
to a new bed of Iris in new ground.

I'll look for this Daconil and try it.  I see it can be done in the Winter.
Thats great.  Spring and Summer are really a busy time for me.

So if I can keep weeds and dying foliage out of the Iris beds it will help
keep brown spot out of the beds.  I'll remember that.  Thanks loads.  Sandra
