	After I have built and filled a new bed of irises and have let
them settle in for about two weeks, I spray with Princep 80.  Then, every
three or four months thereafter, I do it again.  If you see a weed, pull
it up and do not hoe.  Later on, if you see a 'crop' of weeds about to
spring up, hoe them and spray again.  I have not seen any adverse effects
on other perennials or bulbs.  Don't expect flower or vegetable seeds to
sprout where you have used the product.  It is best to spray between rains
when the ground is dry and not to hoe between applications.  My timetable
has usually been October, late Feb-early March, and July.
