What's Your Hardiness Zone? | TN Nursery

Saturday, April 2

What's your hardiness zone?

Different ways of figuring out hardiness zones exist, but there are eleven basic ones.

Once you know your zone, then consider more questions. What is the climate of my area? Do I live at the foot of a mountain, on an open plain, in a large city, or near a swamp? All these things affect your growing needs and can give you very different issues than someone else in the same hardiness zone.

Now that you've considered your general area consider your yard or balcony itself. Yes, even on a balcony, you can have microclimates. Which area is in the shade all day long? Which area is so hot it could kill a cactus? The more questions you ask about your growing area, the easier it is to pick the right plants for the right areas for just what you need. Boxwood creates a cold hardy hedge. Please find it in our mail order catalog.
