I have only found 3 borers in my iris gardens. I, too, live in zone
4.5 (4b) and have about 100 (and growing. . .) known Bearded
Cultivars. Hopefully I won't see to many, but as I understand it
(correct me please, someone) borer eggs survive winter in rubbish and
dead weeds/iris leaves from the previous year. If you can keep the
mulch/dead stuff out of the garden, you probably can keep the borer
I hope to burn my tons of rubbish this spring after the snow leaves.
But you say this doesn't work for you?? Oh, boy, then maybe there is no
hope for me!
maybe i'm not awating spring so much after all. . .
