USDA Plant Hardiness Zones

To help gardeners understand which plants will grow well for them, the entire USA has been segmented into ‘Plant Hardiness Zones’. Knowing your zone number is helpful when shopping for plants because:

  • Cold-area gardeners can avoid buying plants that simply won’t survive their lowest winter temperatures.
  • Warm-area gardeners can steer clear of plants that need a period of cold weather in order to bloom again.

Plant Information

Arugula is probably the No. 1 preferred green today for salads, after lettuce, of course. With its attractive ruffled leaves, it's also a beauty in the garden. Arugula is super easy to grow, and once yours "rockets" up from seed, you'll be harvesting the delicious leaves for salads all season long.

When and Where to Plant: Hardy Annual. Sow seeds as soon as soil can be worked. Transplanting is not recommended. Sow in 2-4" wide bands at ~30 sds/ft, in rows 8-10" apart. Optimal soil temp for germination is between 45-70°F. Harvest leaves when they are 2-4" tall for baby leaf or at desired size. Cut leaves 1" above soil line to allow for re-growth. Plant every 3 weeks for a continual supply.

Q & A

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).
