What is your zone?

Your average zone is calculated by the lowest temperature you get during the winter. This determines what plants will survive in your area. As an example many willows and species of thyme will survive in a zone 2 climate and are hardy to -50 degrees Fahrenheit. Of course we can fool mother nature by creating micro-climates!
