CULT: Overwintering in pots

<Linda, I read your comments about potting while reconditioning your 
soil with
great interest.>
Neil - It's the strangest thing...some of those I thought I'd lost (like THORNBIRD) hardened up and are now sending up little fans.  Fortunately I had some THORNBORD left in the garden, so if I had lost the one in the pot, I wouldn't have been upset.  Several others also have hardened up, which is was a pleasant surprise!  And you're right - some cvs are just tougher/hardier/better survivors.
I lost maybe 15 -20 out of probably between 75-100...not bad odds considering the bitter winter with several thaws (and most of those I lost were potted late).  Then the potted irises had no snow for protection for awhile after the thaws when the weather got bitter again - only more Baccto as mulch and their position against the south side of the house.
Linda ;-)
