What are growing zones?
Growing zones have been created to show you what you can grow in your area. If you’re not sure what zone you are, head over to the USDA site where you can put in your zip code to find out your exact hardiness zone. If you’re located in Canada, check out your growing zones here. Knowing your zone helps you narrow down what you can grow when planning your garden. Certain plants may have different growing techniques based on your zone as well, such as when to plant or to start indoors or directly outdoors.
