Pitfalls of extra rainy period?
Here near Ottawa we have had an extremely rainy fall. Many weeks have gone by without a single sunny day. (It's depressing!) I know that usually gardeners are concerned about not enough rain in the fall, but are there drawbacks to too much rain in the fall? For instance, could this have a bad effect on certain perennials, such as irises and the like, that like to be fairly high and dry?
