    You are in Zone 6b, Laura.I notice that you keep saying you are in zone 5 and act surprised that why the weather is warm in February.

  2. Patricia Skeen on March 24, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    I like your gardening style!!!
    Since I’m in zone 8 can you recommend a good gardener, or hook-up with a zone 8 gardener(s) that have similar great style as you do, & do some collaboration videos? Thanks!!!

  3. Danielle Gardens on March 24, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Great info! I didn’t know about the temperature change if you have them in pots instead of in the ground!!! Your videos are SOOO helpful and such and asset to my gardening, thanks girl!!!

  8. Gord Baker on March 24, 2021 at 10:57 pm

  9. Beatrice Raymond on March 24, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    What zone are you in??? Garden answer does not say what zone you are in. I am in Bellingham WA and think we are in zone 8. It would be helpful to know where you are!!

  10. Ezway Ocho on March 24, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    I’m zone 7b borderline of 8a

  11. Simply Golf on March 24, 2021 at 11:02 pm

  12. Allyson H on March 24, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Laura, you are such an amazing teacher. Sincerely Thank you!

  13. Natalia Lopes on March 24, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Thank you for this info

  14. suziediva on March 24, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Ok… so really new to this zone thing… you are a great teacher… but man you talked sooooo fast & went over so many things so quickly… that it went right over my head! For the absolute newbees… could you do a slower, more extensive explanation on zones with a bit more detail, so we can actually get it:) appreciate it much🙏

  15. colburn888 on March 24, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Im in a zone where its -10 to -15°F in the winter & 95 to 100°F in the summer. Not sure how to pick a zone number.

  16. grapefruitiswinning on March 24, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    This is a remarkably informative video!

  17. chamelor on March 24, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    Im in a zone10 and bought a jap maple tree today as i always wanted one. Good luck to me! Wish climate didnt matter to plants cz so many beautiful plants dont do well here…

  18. makenna conway on March 24, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    Do zones matter if it’s indoors? I live in Oklahoma, around the middle. But at my house it never gets below 65 and never gets above 78, so does zone really matter?

  19. Mateo White on March 24, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Mhmm thank you so much

  20. Elizabeth Blanch on March 24, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Our area is like yours it said zone 6 but some say a 5 I stick with 5 we are just out side of Buffalo NY and our winters can be really be brutal. We can get 2 ft one year and 10-12 ft the next year. Our wind is crazy to one winter we had 7’ -8’ drifts and we are on a farm. So I know how it is . Love your videos God Bless

  21. Rayvensparrow on March 24, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Great info! I wover it there is a map for average high temp

  22. Kayla Austin on March 24, 2021 at 11:09 pm

  23. Tammy Dear on March 24, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    Very informative and well explained. God bless you gal from here in North Carolina USA 👣👣👣

  24. Connie Byrd on March 24, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    I needed this.. Thank you for "not" just the zones but the added info.

  25. CountryManorSTCLFL on March 24, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    I wonder if you can suggest any gardeners to follow in zone 9B or close by with a similar gardening style to you. I absolutely love you but would be nice to see a closer reference for inspiration. All I can find around here are food gardeners which I lile too but I need inspiration for my flower beds.

  26. catherine donoghue on March 24, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I live in Ireland..most of those plants come into the green house for the winter..

  27. Isa M on March 24, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Thank you for the info……lord it is cold in Quebec !!!!!!!

  28. Russ Saari on March 24, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    A good way to find your zone in temperate zones is to search cold hardiness zone in your county and state.

  29. Lynn Kiefer on March 24, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Thank you SO MUCH! As a Master Gardner I am asked this all the time. Sharing on Facebook for my brown thumb friends 😁

  30. Dianne Willis on March 24, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    I’m so happy to hear you’re a zone 5. I am as well here in Nova Scotia, Canada. I love your channel and was nervous I wouldn’t be able to follow your advice.

  31. Katharine Odlum on March 24, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Thanks so much for including the link for the Canadian Zone Map! I’m up in Toronto and since I heard you mention your zone I’ve always been so curious! I’m just getting into gardening and I love your videos. They are so informative and accessible 🙂

  32. Cheryl M on March 24, 2021 at 11:27 pm

    I cannot believe anyone would give you a thumbs down!? I am so happy to have found you! Love your videos!!! Thank you so much for all your terrific info!!!

  41. Johnny on March 24, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Hello gardening and planting is one of my favorite hobbies question what hardiness zones are for spruce trees in one of my catalogs there is a weeping Norway spruce frohberg it’s listed for zones 3-9 this 9 zone is in Texas what would zones 3-9 mean and what are the expected possible chances of it surviving the climate?

  42. Nancy Lam on March 24, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    I in California zip code 93446 , can you check what zone ?
    Thanks

  43. Tracey Ellis on March 24, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    I love your video . Send this to Lowe’s here though because they are truly not hiring people who know anything about the plants grown here.

  44. Diane Picard on March 24, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    I live in Canada and my zone is 5

  45. Ana Paula Crawford on March 24, 2021 at 11:43 pm

  49. Josh Esteva on March 24, 2021 at 11:50 pm

  50. Emily Elmer on March 24, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    Just found an Australian version of this! I live in Tasmania (the coldest bit of Australia) and turns out I live in a zone 8 by USDA standards! Zone 2 by ours 😂😂
