Dang if sc is too hot then is there no hope at all for LA in socal? I was planning on putting them inside if it gets too hot and pouring refrigerated water over their roots. Also, does cook’s sell the hardy mountain/Oregon variety?

Your average temps in June, July, and August are all within acceptable parameters, so I would think you have a reasonable shot esp. if you are closer to the coast.

Oh, I forgot, I have order from Cooks several times with good results, although they can be very slow.

Not every Tuesday. Sometimes it takes a couple weeks or more. If you are trying to avoid buying from “people”, I don’t think you will like this shop. It’s just run by one person part time and sometimes they have trouble keeping up with customer service.
