Re: CULT-freezing temp


Hi Julie,

Definitely cover the irises. Temps that low can "burn" the tender buds even
those not ready to open.

I use an ugly but effective cover... tomato cage for support with a heavy
plastic garbage bad over it. Weight the edges of the bag down so that as
much air as possible is trapped inside.

Good luck,
Christy
