	About 4 years ago, I purchased some iris and received some wooden
	markers for labels...used them for three years with great success
	(ink still legible, etc.) *but* this year they started to break off
	at ground level and I couldn't find the recessed part of the `stick'
	....without digging up the whole bed. 

	My 17 yr. old daughter is convinced that the wood is helpful to
	the irises....maybe she is right? :-)
