Subject: Re: Re: [CHAT] Re: temperatures and hardiness

Pam,<br>I'm sure there's some value in Cathey's heat zones and as you've
related it<br>does help you. I'm in USDA Zone 5 for cold and AHS heat
zone 5, so it<br>doesn't seem to make much of a difference for me.
Still, as Marge pointed<br>out - and more or less as a nod to Cathey -
there simply is more to growing<br>plants than a hardiness zone number.
Cathey took one step, whereas, as<br>Marge points out, there are many
factors to take into account. But at least<br>he made an attempt and it
does help some people.<br><br>And I really wish my Lily of the Valley
would just die and stay dead.<br><br>Kitty<br><br>----- Original Message
