Re: now weather, Pam's-Progress on the garden wall

Maybe cannas need more sun up there Marge because I know they can live
w/ wet - not that they get that very often here. But Jesse's do ok in
6B. And I know your place is fairly shady. They can do w/ shade here
(like my favorite MG says at my favorite nursery) when gardening books
(not written by Texans)say a plant needs full sun, they mean full sun in
CT or VT. Not here. Eva left some of hers in the ground this year
because that one copy paper box I sent her Spring before last has become
thousands. She packed them all up last year but ran out of steam to dig
and tubs to store them in this year. She buried them in mulch and we'll
see how they do.
