What's a Zone?
Not sure what Zone you garden in?
Follow this link to the USDA Cold Zone Map and find your location.
A zone measures how cold it gets in your area in the winter.

Since the USDA map only measures cold, they created a new standard map that tells you your Heat Zone.
This makes a big difference in many plants you may be trying to grow.
Some plants can deal with cold but can't stand too many hot days.
You can go here to find out what AHS Heat Zone you garden in.

There is also a Sunset Western Climate zone map available for those on the West Coast of the U.S.
