help iris borer
i have 10,000 iris in my garden, the leaves starting turning brown and drying up. i took some to the university and they said that it was from the late hard frost that we had. they suggested that i just cut back the brown spots as i was doing that this week i found this web site and the real culprit of my problem the iris borer. can any one help with suggestions on what to do. everything i have read on here says dig them up and do the bleach treatment. i don't know that i can do all of them that fast to save them. does anyone have any suggestions on what i can do to halt the borers and kill them as i work through the beds and do the bleach thing? does anyone know everything else that i have read also says to move the beds is there any kind of treatment so i don't have to move all of these beds? any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.
