Re: CULT: Iris Borer

From: Wjobe@aol.com

I found the perfect way to eliminate iris borers!!  First you dig up all your
iris (inspect all the fans and rhizomes for the little creepy devils!) clean 
the iris, write their names on all of them,then you pack them, with their 
name tags, in the cut off boxes canned goods set in at the grocery store. 
Then stack them in BIG boxes and MOVE!!  Now it works best if you move to a 
hot climate or at least during the hottest time of the year!  Now, unpack 
them and stack the containers of iris on tables in the garage.  Your beds 
aren't ready yet, so get started on them.  In about two months, you are ready 
to plant!! This is when you discover the borers, you overlooked when you 
inspected them at digging and cleaning time, have crawled out into the box 
and dried up!!  In fact they are so dried they are petrified!!  Works for 
(:  )

Where we still have 55 clumps with bloom stalks!
I have  four vases of iris in the kitchen and gave a vase of blooms to
the neighbor and took a vase full to garden club, where everyone got
to take one home!
