Finding My Zone For Planting

All plants have a different areas in which they can survive. For insistence, plant a warm climate plant in a cold climate area and it would not survive the cold for long. Or plant a cold climate plant in a warm area and see how it does. This is also true for roses, not all roses can live in all climates. Some like warmer climates than other.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has created a zone map to help us with planting. So finding my zone for planting has become easier. This map divides the U.S. into Hardiness Zones. These zones are determined on average by the coldest winter temperatures for a particular area. The primary factor in determining what plants can grow where is often the coldest temperatures.

Find the zone you are in by looking at the map below.
