Spring Iris care By Jan Hahn Meeker County Master Gardener Walking out in my yard the other day I was enjoying the beautiful spring weather-that was until I noticed my matted iris bed and the obvious signs of a new puppy in the family. So, as I prepare to get out there and do some serious dirty work, I'll leave you with some timely advice on caring for your own iris bed. Ideally the iris bed should have been mulched with clean non- packing mulch in late November. This mulch should he removed as soon as the snow and .ice have melted in the spring. Remo-ethe top layer to allow air and sunlight to dry out the surface. Wait a few days before removing the rest of fhe mulch. Be  when you're removing the mulch because breaking the center fan of leaves will prevent the plant from blooming. I guess that's why I don't recommend using a rake, even a bamboo one. Do remove all dead leaves with a gentle tug by hand or clipping. Do the final clean up on a sunny dry day when the soil surface is dry. Check for any signs of dry rot or winter damage. If rot is showing up on some rhizomes (iris "bulb"), just scrape it off with a spoon. Treat the scraped area with a good drench of fungicide. As soon as the ground warms up and your i_s start actively growing again you should start a spray program to prevent iris borer, the main insect pest of iris. A systemic insecticide will control the borer once it has already entered the rhizome. Check insecticide labels to fmd an effective spray. Using manure as fertilizer around the plants will favor rhizome rots. So use a fertilizer that's higher in potassium and idmsphorus such as 5-10-10 or 10- 0-0. Apply as soon as they start to grow again and repeat as often as you need to, to keep up healthy growth. But don't fertilizer after the middle of August so that plants have a chance to harden off for winter. When your iris are done blooming cut-back the flower stalks but don't trim the leaves. Leaves provide food to give your plant beautiful bloom next year. Happy 70th Q. My pound cake always leaks when I use a tube pan with a removable bottom. Is there a way to avoid this? W.O., Dayton, OH A. Your pan may be warped or bent and not have a complete seal between the two parts causing the hatter to seep out. Be sure to place the cake in a preheated oven so that baking begins immediately. Q. How long does it take to get a smooth and elastic bread dough with a dough hook on the mixer? J.G., Deltoua, Fl A. A dough hook kneads bread in about a third the time it takes to do it by hand. Doughs depend on many factors and because of that, the exact time will vary. Plan for dough to he kneaded three to five minutes and do your own test for smoothness and elasticity. Q. You have been my idol for years. Why do certain recipes call for unsalted butter? V.O., Straughn, IN A. I'm honored by your compliment. Unsalted butter is called for when a delicate flavor is essential for such recipes as pastries and French sauces. Regular butter will affect the taste slightly, but not the overall outcome of the recipe. Low- sodium recipes may specify unsalted butter to reduce total sodium in a recipe.
