Re: PCNs

From: "Mike Sutton" <suttons@lightspeed.net>

Hi Tim,
I don't know about cold hardiness but we have a hard time getting them
through the summer.  This past summer we had a high survival rate because
the summer was so mild.  PCNs (or PCIs) are really finicky, they don't like
a lot of variation in temps.  The past winters freeze killed off quite a few
but some made it through.  George has a couple of seedlings that appear to
be heat hardy, they have made it through five summers.  If you had 5% make
it through the winter I would guess that you might be on to something with
those 5%.  Even the complete failure of an experiment is a valuable learning
experience for you and who ever else you give the results to.
Good Luck.

>I've been experimenting with planting seed of PCN's in my southern
Wisconsin garden (zone 5) and have had about 5% of the seedlings make it
through one winter.  I will be planting out about another 200 this spring.
Is ther any evidence that the pacificas might be selectable for cold
hardiness or am I wasting my time and money in this little experiment.?
