Hardiness Zones

Zone 1

Planting in Zone 1 can be quite challenging. Plants able to withstand the tundra are rare. Native plants have already adapted to the area, so it makes sense that they’re a natural, excellent choice.

Zone 3

Most native plants can be grown across the zone, regardless of altitude, as long as growing conditions are similar. The short growing season limits vegetable and flowering annuals, but you can extend the growing season by starting plants indoors.

Zone 5

Plant hardiness Zone 5 includes the southern coastal region of Alaska, the North Central United States and portions of New England. With minimum average temperatures between -20 and -10 degrees F, this zone experiences a moderately cold winter.

Plants That Are Suitable for Zones 2 and 3

Andromeda Polifolia

Bog rosemary (Andromeda polifolia) is a mounding groundcover that reveals narrow, bluish-green leaves and clusters of small, white or pink, bell-shaped blooms.

Papaver Nudicaule

Iceland poppy (Papaver nudicaule) displays masses of blooms in shades of orange, yellow, rose, salmon, white, pink, cream and yellow. Each bloom appears atop a graceful, leafless stem. Iceland poppy is one of the most colorful zone 2 plants.

Brunnera Macrophylla

Siberian bugloss (Brunnera macrophylla) is a low-growing plant that produces deep green, heart-shaped leaves and small, eye-catching blooms of intense blue.

Useful Tips on Irrigation

Hydrate Plants In The Morning
The best time to water outdoor flowers and vegetables is before the heat of the day when the soil is cool and the water has the best chance of seeping down to the roots of the plants before evaporating.
img
Water Plants At Soil Level
Directing water at the base of your plants delivers the hydration right where it’s needed - the roots.

Make a Soaker Hose
Is your hose full of holes? If you have an old hose you’re no longer able to use (or an extra one lying around) repurpose it as a soaker hose. It’s easy, just poke holes along its length.
