Default Re: who can enlighten me about sugar cane?

Thanks for the info. I don't think that one finds most of those pests in the high desert of AZ. I guess that I will need to find some sugarcane and just give it a try next spring.

Cane grows here okay. We get pretty warm temps here. Today was 100F. What limits us on many of the things we plant is not the lack of warmth, nor the intense colds of winter..rather the warm late winters/early springs that trick all the plants into thinking summer is close and the blossom only to loose the blossoms to a late freeze. (that takes most of our pitted fruits 7 out of 8 years)

Will a frost kill sugar cane? Would I need to wait until past danger of frost to plant, or would one be able to plant it and mulch heavy on nights when there were frosts dangers?

thanks again
