Do You Know Your Zone?

USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map, 2012. Agricultural Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture. Accessed from http://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov. 

If you’ve not gardened much, the references to zones in seed catalogs, in nurseries and on packaging can be confusing.  The USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map gives garden climate information.  Gardeners can use the map to check where plants have grown well, and particularly in northern climates, which plants can withstand cold temperatures.

Come over to Green Circle Grove to read some history of the Zone Map, and to find out just what zone you're in!
