When it comes to gardening and landscaping, there’s a lot of information out there. It can feel overwhelming to sift through and to understand what works for our unique Northern climate. That’s why we’ve gathered all our favorite resources in one place!

The USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is the national standard we use to determine the likeliness of a plant to thrive in a location. Using this standard, our region is consider Zone 4b (-25 to -20 °F/-31.7 to -28.9 °C average annual minimum winter temperature). Plants with a zone designation higher than 4b are not likely to survive a standard winter in this region! Any plants we sell with a designation higher than 4b will be classified as “tropicals” or “annuals” and will not overwinter outdoors.
