Visualizzazione ingrandita della mappa
Even before playing with the idea of starting a garden blog, I should've figured out at first where I stood in the gardening zone. Little did I know that this bit of info could help me find, or to be found, by others with similiar climate conditions. Hello all of my fellow gardeners...I'm italian zone 8, although with the microclimate created in our valley, it can differ year to year.
The bottom link helped me to discover which zone I corresponded to in the general area, but it was the USDA Zone Map which pinpointed what my zone would be in relation to average annual minimum temperature. Look's like I'm zone 9b. Now I can toy with the idea of planting a persimmon tree. Hmmm...Italian gardening zones @virtualitalia.com
