Hardiness Zone Map

The USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is a useful tool for determining which plants are best suited to grow in a particular area. It provides a general idea of which plants will be able to survive the average minimum winter temperature at a location. The map divides the United States and parts of Canada into 13 different zones based on the average minimum winter temperature, with each zone representing a range of 10 degrees Fahrenheit. This information helps gardeners and growers choose plants that are likely to thrive in their specific growing region, which can improve their chances of success in the garden. By using the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map, gardeners and growers can make informed decisions about which plants to grow, and can ensure that they are selecting plants that are well adapted to the conditions in their area.
