Re: Deer and Iris

Hi All,

The irises are just starting to bloom ESP the SDB's and we received 2" of
rain yesterday.  They say rain will end Wed.  I am almost tempted to go out
and cover the buds to protect them.
I too have heard that dear will eat irises.  Guess we have just been lucky
as we do not have a fenced in area and the dear walk through the irises
beds.  I will say, the gophers have eaten some of the irise roots and have
caused lots of damage to one certain iris bed.   I think I will try a few
wind mills stuck in the ground on metal post.  I hear that works to keep
them away. The gophers that is.
