Zone Planting Guide

Hello Everyone,


I was searching for some information on the web about what to grow in my zone per each month of the year.  There is a lot of useful information.  I wanted to share one particular resource on


or directly at


There are PDF guides that can be downloaded per USDA agricultural zone each zone.  The PDFs list about 45 of the most commonly planted vegetables and herbs and has a chart indicating which month of the year you can plant each vegetables. 


For people in the north, cold regions there is a special note about vegetable plants which grow especially well in the colder weather.


I found it very useful, so I just wanted to pass it along.


Enjoy your gardening!

    RHS zones are more use in Britain.  American zoning is very different because of the increased rainfall we have here in Winter.

    Also, a small island like Britain has far more changeable weather than a large landmass, so here we tend to rely on trial and error, experience and daily weather forecastsimage
