Different Canadian and American Zones

Different Canadian and American Zones

I just learned through trial and error, then consultation with my nursery, how drastic the differences are between Canadian and American planting Zones are.

For all you Canadian gardners out there - if you're looking at "zone maps" from the US, remember that they use a different system than in Canada. Typically, a Zone 4 plant from a US source will be a Zone 5 plant in Canada. A Zone 5 plant in the US will be a Zone 6 plant in Canada.

On top of that, a single province (like Ontario) can have up to 5 different zones in the province! I included more here, if you are interested: http://red-is-green.livejournal.com/9474.html
