Re: Iris borer & Winter??
I am confused by this - some parts of Canada are south of Buffalo
and those of us who try to garden in USDA Zone 3 in New England (!),
know that ol' man winter comes here before it thinks of appearing in
Nova Scotia, etc. - and it stays forever, it seems.
New England includes Northern Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont
which all have Zones comprising 3 to 5. This is a obvious sticking
point with me....sorry.
Admittedly, the Northwest Territories (Zone 2 ?) are a different saga
entirely but most of inhabited Canada (where we have family) has a
higher climatic zone than we do here in the White Mountains of New
Hampshire.....perhaps the Iris Borer (of which I admittedly have
never seen and only know what I have read) does do what Chris and
Dave maintain but I DO know about winter and the North Pole....
