I have used Preen (preemergent) and Grass Out to combat the grass and weed
problem in my iris garden but I find myself still spending days hand
weeding. I would prefer to spend those days doing something else :-)
Has any tried using mulch? I have my irises planted in long rows and I was
going to try putting mulch down on the path between the rows. I will not put
any mulch close to the irses. I know that as the mulch decomposes it takes
up the nitrogen in the soil but since I feed my irises anyway I thought this
would not be a major problem. Has anyone tried this approach or have another
solution I have not tried yet? I would truly like to get away from chemical
control of weeds.
Any help would be appreciated.
