I read through Tom Mitchell's "[pbs] BX 227 - notes on 22 to 31" with interest. Considering our discussion on "Parallel Regions", I'm just wondering if his comments on his Nerine bowdenii 'wellsii' mean that I might be able to grow it in central western Indiana or is this Nerine unable to tolerate a warm, dry summer? The comment I'm referring to is this one: "They are hardy in the coldest region of the UK and quite tolerant of wet, heavy soil too." BTW: Thank you to everyone who has participated in the Parallel Regions discussion. I have learned a lot reading through it. Sincerely, Anita Clyburn Terre Haute, Indiana Where I am busy trying to set the local record for most bags of fall leaves mulched.
