Re: CULT:HYB:Edith Wolford

What is  there about the pot culture for EDITH WOLFORD that is
different from the  experience of garden culture? 

Neil, I will add to this.  When I lift EDITH from the pot I have to  cut and 
hack the roots apart.  It is a solid mass and I could not lift it  as a single 
unit.  The bacto (potting soil) comes straight from the bag  with no clay or 
other soils added.  It does wear thin, nutritionally, and  compact, over time. 
About 1/3 to 1/2 the volume of the pot is added back  each time I dig it. 
I would much rather go through this than do without Edith.  She was  shoved 
in a corner last year out by the shed.  Now that I'm thinking of  her, I'm 
going to give her a more prominent place!  ;-)  I'm thinking  about reclaiming 
some other favorites in this manner, Ruffled Ballet for  instance.  
The soil composition is totally different in the pot, drainage is good,  both 
vertical and horizontal.  But, I left too many rhizomes or eyes in the  pot 
and now I'm going to have to dig it again this year!
