Re: Deer and Iris

Hi Rima,
I have never heard about milorganite.  I am glad it has worked for you so
you could enjoy all of your fruits of labor.  The front of our home is
filled with irises and the tulips sit in-between them.  What a beautiful
sight it has been until the rain came yesterday and knocked some of the
petals off the tulips.   Even some of the little SDB's have been damaged but
were beautiful when they first opened up.   It's a shame the flowers bloom
for such a short time.
Hope you have a great blooming season.  Enjoy reading some of your comments.
