Hiya Re: The cold hardy list

This is a late response to Ragmop in Rimbey, Alberta. And yes, I've actually been there, about 7 years ago! I'm impressed with anyone trying to grow bananas in this part of the world, where the climate is more known for killing plants than nurturing them. Again, late, this is an old thread, but welcome, and kudos on trying bananas in Alberta,(I'm a former Albertan (Calgary)). If it hasn't been pointed out yet, a large number of the members are in the States, and talk in Fahrenheit, not Celsius, so you have to read between the lines a bit, and not get bummed out by their griping about temperatures. After a while, I check their zone first, and location, then read the entry. Those in less favorable climes just suck it up and do the best they can. Like folks in Rimbey! Best regard, Rik
