Re: Hello! Rose question...

Hi, Kitty! Yes, the USDA has decided just this year that I'm in Zone
6--but most Z.6 plants aren't trustworthy here, with the wild
temperature swings SW OH has in winter. >:-P (oh, what I'd plant if I
didn't know better from experience!)

I don't have a soil thermometer, but buying one seems the thing to do.
Are thermometers one of those garden tools that work no matter how cheap
they are, or do you have to lay out bucks to get one that works well?

Wendy, I'm in Z5 neIN, you're, I'd suppose, in Z6.  This has been a pleasant 
fall season so far and I'd have no qualms moving most plants by the end of 
September.  However, the season can make a quick turn and get cold fast like it 
did last year.  It's helpful to remember that soil temp is more important than 
air temp.  Do you have a soil thermometer?
