My mom's iris are blooming beautifully this yr. Does anyone have suggestions on what to use to keep the iris borers away from our iris?
We have used Cygon but it is $$ and stinks.
Thanks for the help! [thinker]

Hello Garden Guy,
I wouldn't know of any chemical, I'm O~Natur~el
but, my only suggestion to keep that bug away is,
Keep their growing environment pretty much almost what they like...And they won't send out distress calls to bag bugs saying they are sick........
(does that make sense??)
Especially, keep them on top of the dirt, good draining dirt and nothing on top of them~like compost or dead leaves...And maybe divided every so many years to keep them vigorous!!!!
