Isn't there an inherent problem in this?  Joe Pye Weed has a "northern"
season, whereas Carol Warner would be more advanced weatherwise.  For her to
have a "spring" shipping date it would probably have to be earlier,
therefore the plants would be more advanced than Ontario would accomodate.
There may be ways to get around this problem, I don't know.
