In this recent Clubhouse chat, Lisa interviewed Janis Harris of Harris Flower Farm in southwestern Ontario Canada. They discussed what it’s like growing flowers at her farm in hardiness zone 5b/6a, and how it is different from Lisa’s farm in zone 7b/8a in Virginia. Janis shares some tips for northern growers, but also offers great general growing advice about how to learn the best practices for your own particular zone and climate, wherever you are. There’s something in this chat for everyone!
