Thank you! 9a with surrounding areas in 9b. Very interesting to see the map with the different zones. I'll be able to read planting suggestions without wondering what zone I'm in.Do an online search on " USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map". You should get all kinds of hits.
Or use this but they want your zip code.
These zones are based on minimum annual temperatures. I don't find them useful for veggies since you account for that as to when you plant them. To me these zones are of more use for trees and bushes. Can they survive your winters?
When I was in Arkansas I was on the border of zones 6 and 7 so any tree I got needed to be good for zones 5, 6, 7 and 8. Especially fruit trees.
It would be cool if that was how you selected your location at sign up. Enter the zip code to find your zone, and clicking the appropriate zone would select that as your "location".
