Zone Map

 

USDA ZONE MAP
For beginning gardeners, a USDA zone map can be a really handy tool to help you understand what vegetable and flower seeds will thrive in the area in which you live. Because regions of the United States vary so much in terms of climate and seasonal changes, it's important to know what to plant and when to plant it. At 2B Seeds, we want you to have the best possible gardening experience with our high quality flower seeds, vegetable seeds and herb seeds. Simply use the color key to determine your zone. Happy sowing!

USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map
Hardiness Zones --- Details

Zones 2-10 in the map have been subdivided into light and dark corored sections (a and b) that represent 5F (2.8C) differences within the 10F (5.6C) zone. The light color of each zone represents the colder section; the dark color, the warmer section. Zone 11 represents any area where the average annual minimum temperature is above 40F (4.4C).

The map shows 20 latitude and longitude lines. Areas above an arbitrary elevation are traditionally concidered unsuitable for plant cropping and do not bear appropiate zone designations. There are also island zones that, because of elevation differences, are warmer or cooler than the surrounding ares and are given a different zone designation.

Note that many large urban aresa carry a warmer zone designation than the surrounding countryside. The map contains as much detail as possible, considering the vast amount of data on which it is based and its size.

When to Plant Vegetable Seeds

Each USDA planting zone has its own schedule for sowing seeds.

If you're new to vegetable gardening, you'll want to know that there is a right time to sow each variety of vegetable seed. By using our zone chart as an estimate for both cool and warm season vegetables, you'll be sure to sow or plant your seeds in the correct window of time, enabling optimum sprouting and yield. And don't forget, the seeds you pick are also of the greatest importance. 2B Seeds Vegetable Seeds are foil packed in our tradmarked Seal'n'Sow package which has been specially designed to keep seeds from drying out, thus insuring much higher germination ratio. Our tomato seeds, squash seeds, broccoli seeds, bush bean seeds and more represent the finest vegetable seeds you will find. Many are AAS award winners, and all are famous for their flavor and excellent production! Even if you are an old hand in the vegetable garden, we hope that our USDA zone planting chart will be a useful tool for organizing your spring and summer vegetable planting. Some of the vegetables are direct sow and some are sow indoors then transplant outdoors. See each items page for further information.
