Utah and Nebraska... quite cold areas.
No wonder What again and Sapphire Jewels are happy
Loads of chicken have been running for years on the
premices, it's much too rich and i will also put loads of lime next
I have an invasion of horse tail, and i've been
told lime was the only way to get rid of it.
So i've got 2 reasons to get started!

<<Betty, can you help on this
Loic, Melba Hamblen hybridized in Roy, Utah. Allan Ensminger
lived in Lincoln Nebraska. I know next to nothing about soil condition
in those areas. Robin could tell you.
This has nothing to do with your seedling or your point, but most Hamblen
iris, and some of their descendants, do not grow well for me in KY.
According to my local county agent, reclaimed cow pastures in this region tend
to be more acid than the average. In early spring I enjoy watching the
farmer across the road. The fields designated for row crop are limed
heavily. I grew up in farm country and I tip my hat to this man.
He is VERY good. But I stray from the point. If he needs to lime,
I need to lime, adjusted to fit the crop.
