USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold-hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Cover Crops Reinvigorate & Protect Tired Soil

Cover crops, aka 'green manures', are a group of plants who specialize in bringing fresh nutrition to undernourished soils. After harvesting heavy feeders like corn, your soil may not have much more to give to the next plant on your list! These bold protectors of bare soil can dig their roots in deep, helping to prevent wind and water erosion from stripping even more nutrients away from the land. When left to break down in-place, cover crops add indispensable organic matter to your soil, feeding the entire community of microbial life responsible for delivering nutrients to plant roots.
