    Hardiness Zones

    I thought it would be a good idea to post this for everyone. I got the idea from a general gardening forum that I sometimes visit for some houseplant tips. Obviously this is for those of us in the US.

    I dont think you can be "8-11"
    you generally have one zone..based on your warmest winter temp.
    so you would probably be simply "zone 11"

    unless you are actually right on a border between two zones, like jimscott,
    his "zone 5-6" is accurate, because he lives on the border between those two zones.

    but most people dont..most people have just one zone number.

    Bruce made a good comment in this thread that is relevant to this discussion:

But Florida's climate would probably bake those plants by May.
