What’s your zone?

An important part of gardening language is knowing your zone. According to the National Gardening Association the USDA Hardiness Zone Map divides North America into 11 separate zones; each zone is 10°F warmer (or colder) in an average winter than the adjacent zone. If you see a hardiness zone in a catalog or plant description, chances are it refers to the USDA map. To find your USDA Hardiness Zone, use the link below.

According to this map I am in zone 10. It is great to know because practically everything you read about gardening gets specific to your zone.
