Fw: CULT: Dividers photos

Thanks for the photos and list of sources Mike!  Those edgers look like they'll work just fine in my raised beds where I've imported good soil.  But I fear that in my rocky clay soil where many of my iris live, it may be rather difficult to pound them into the ground with larger rocks hiding under the soil surface.  I'll probably end up having to trench those edgers in just like the strip edging, but at least it would only have to be done once. After removing the impeding rocks from the area, I could just pound the divider sections back in every spring.  It looks easier than what I'm doing now, that's for sure!

Here are the photos of them. Different manufactures make the shape a little
different. The 4' green ones are $4 and most of the places I bought them
are all priced the same. At first I cut sections off the rolls of edging. After
frost heave the only way to get them back in was to dig them in.
