I guessed that no one would want to insulate heat IN, unless they lived on a mountaintop. But maybe they would try to insulate it OUT?

That was how I felt about my (only) Delphinium. I killed many seeds in soggy germination trays, then fed MANY seedlings to slugs. Finally ONE Pacific Giant delphinium survived, and then it thrived.
