Planting Zones Are Areas Where Different Types Of Plants Work Well from Tn Nursery

You may not know that the plant you just bought isn't designed to grow in your region. If you can't get a flower to bloom or find that your new shrub died suddenly, the reason could be where you live.



The USDA breaks North America into 11 distinct planting zones, each with its unique temperature and environmental factors influencing a plant's survival chances. Certain types of plants are well-suited for each region. 

You may still tend plants that aren't the best match for your planting zone, but sticking to your area will help you find the right plants for your garden and give you the most excellent chance of success.
