Re: CULT: drying out beds

Linda, clear plastic might work if you are talking about empty beds.  (You 
have to watch that clay doesn't become brick!) If anyone is trying to dry out 
beds that already contain irises to minimize the chance of rot, the results 
would be boiled irises.  I doubt we want that.  

There's a big difference in February and August.  In my part of Kentucky, we 
are having life zapping heat.  Don't let the lower reported temps fool you.  
Anything under plastic today would experience a horrible death!  (Not the 
time for children or animals in parked cars.)

As for the iris beds, anyone got a big fan?  LOL
