When is it useful? The Hardiness Zone Map #shorts

The plant hardiness zone map is divided into 13 zones. A warmer climate will have a higher zone #️⃣. Cooler climates have lower zone #️⃣s as well as lower average winter temperatures.❄️ 🗺While it’s a good to know your growing zone, it’s only relevant to perennial plants and their ability to survive the lowest average winter temperature in your region. Perennial plants live more than two years. Your growing zone won’t matter if you’re growing annual crops like cucumbers, corn or radish, as they are grown seasonally, not year-round. 🌱When you’re shopping for perennial crops, make sure to check the plant tag. It should state the zones it is generally hardy to. I tend to choose plants that are rated for lower zones so they have a better chance of survival especially in the winter. ✳️ Some plants may tolerate or adapt to lower temperatures if planted in the ground as it will be more insulated. I hope you find this helpful! Have a good night! 💖🌙 Source: USDA Agricultural Research
