It’s a balmy morning in mid-July and plants have received adequate moisture. The Plant Exchange USDA Zone 4 -5a refers more to winter averages. Summer heat, dry and erratic conditions also impact the region. We cherish temperate conditions that help container plants to remain robust in mid-summer.

His suggestions may apply broadly to other others as well. His suggestions about growing tomatoes are at this link:
