	My favorite fertilizer is alfalfa pellets!  Definitely the horse
pellets, not the rabbit.  The rabbit pellets can have corn in them and the
horse are 100% alfalfa.  
	Whether you make tea out of them, or till them in, both methods
work.  I do not sprinkle them on top of the iris.  No reason in particular,
just have never done it. I haven't tried it immediately after bloom but we
have used them spring and fall.  Here, I make alfalfa tea to feed them in an
existing bed or till them in when making a new bed.  If you are interested I
can share my alfalfa tea recipe.

Greetings.
 
Has anyone any experience with applying alfalfa pellets immediately post  
bloom towards the goal of stronger plants and more increase? Could you  
discern any benefit? 
 
I'm dealing with a group of early diploids which were reset last fall,  and 
bloomed well, but will probably need to be reset again this fall due to  
construction. I thought some alfabits might be in order.
 
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
 
Cordially,
