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).

What's in this Mix?
Winter wheat, field peas, annual rye grass, red clover, and hairy vetch combine for extreme soil conditioning. Field peas and crimson clover grow quickly in autumn and provide late-season forage for pollinators. These legume crops fix nitrogen in the soil, converting nitrogen from the air into a form usable by plants. Field peas and crimson clover are killed by winter temperatures, leaving a rich layer of organic matter to feed soils and protect against erosion. Winter wheat provides dense cover that lasts through the winter months. The deep, extensive root system improves soil tilth (structure) and alleviates compaction. Hairy vetch also fixes nitrogen in the soil and provides abundant organic matter. This winter-hardy cover crop blooms in spring. Mow just prior to blooming to kill plants in advance of spring planting. Sow fall cover crop mix in late summer or early fall for vigorous late season growth.
