Iris Weed Control
I have a large iris patch and have a lot of clover and violets. What can I use to control or kill the clover and violets plus some weeds? Also, what sort of fertilizer should I use? I live in Georgia.

Note: To prevent harm to iris plants, you should either pull them up by hand or spot treat carefully. Boiling water can also help kill these and other weeds, but care should still be taken as to not get any on the irises.
A high phosphourus fertilizer, like bone meal, can be applied to irises if non-flowering is an issue.
