Dear Tony:

Thanks for your thoughts, most interesting.

In your message, you say "Hydration in bulbs and agaves is quite
different than in shrubs and trees". Could you elaborate on this a
little? Re the trees that got clobbered, in a great cold snap here, some
years ago now, some trees were hit hard while others of the same species
were not damaged at all, even though in the same area. This was because
of the wind chill factor and those protected a little were the ones that
survived. I feel wind-chill is often ignored when such things happen and
it should not be. Do you think the composition of soil mixes can be
regulated to provide more protection to plants in pots? Cheers, John E.
