Know that yesterday my husband offered to help me cut the leaves of the irises, because I am having a problem with garden pests and needed to treat the irises with concentrated spearmint. I thought that the leaves were cut on irises then it the pest repellent would have a better chance at getting to the rhizome and then get rid of the borers.
About ten minutes into the project husband told me that cutting the leaves was ridiculous and that he decided to cut the grass. So I thanked him for what he did and went about my garden business.
