United Kingdom

Be aware of the hardiness zone in your area before you decide to buy plants. Some plants might not survive over winter!

The United Kingdom lies in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 6 through 9 with some variations across regions and seasons. It enjoys a temperate maritime climate characterized by cool winters and warm summers. Summers are cooler than those on the continent (not much higher than 32ºC in summer), but the winters are milder (not much lower than 0ºC in winter). Around the coasts, February is normally the coldest month, but inland there is little to choose between January and February as the coldest month.

If you know your hardiness zone, find the best plants or exciting garden ideas for your geographic area.
