Canada

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

If you are planning to buy a shrub, perennial or tree, you need to make sure that this new plant will tolerate year-round conditions in your area. Therefore, to ensure your new acquisition will survive and grow year after year, you will need to compare the hardiness zone of your area with the hardiness zone of your plant.

Canada lies in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 2 through 9.

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