jahilton and greenrivergirl, I'm in Santa Rosa trying to do some of the same things....attract wildlife, use no chemicals, and plant that which is deer-resistant; I appreciate what you've shared about gardening in this area. I hope the bees and butterflies return to all of us----do plant some milkweed for the monarchs, too.

I had a terrible plague of Iris borers, it seemed I was losing the battle until an older friend told this trick. It is messy and time consuming but it worked. I dug all the iris, put them in a pile and then found an old wash tub. My friend told me to fill the tub about half full, maybe 10 gallons of water. Then I added a half a cup of bleach. I mixed it around, then put the iris in the tub. The next day I took each plant, cut off the rotten places and dug out the borers. After cutting back the foliage to a consistent height, I replanted them in a different location. I haven't had Iris borers since. I'm not sure if moving the plants caused the improvement or the cleaning and bleach rinse did the trick. It worked for me. I am so happy with the results! I realize using bleach is not a natural cure but I feel like it was better than spraying or just digging them up and throwing them in a ditch.

Review for Olde New England Granite/The Reed Corp:

We have worked closely with the folks at Olde New England Granite for many years, and we can honestly say we don't know how we could do what we do without them!...
