    Zone 4 here in Southern Vermont. Maybe you could do this up as a survey ... might be easier to keep a count. Just a thought ...

    If you look at a zone map, Ohio has a little finger of zone 5b coming across from east to west. That's where I am.

    S.Mississippi-zone8a/8b.The microclimate an definitely 8b,or better.I think it's amazing the difference a microclimate can make.It's often that my neighbor will have serious frost on his lawn,and I'll just have dew.

    My house is in 9 but my property in E. Texas is in 8 so this is what I count. When we post up questions that come from having land and being 15 miles from the nearest town, it is all related to our property. And we only get two days out of the week to work with it. It is a good thing that a city house doesn't present all of the challenges that a place in the country does or I would never live till retirement.

    I am in zone 8b where gardening is definitely a challenge. First too much rain then no rain or drought. The humidity and heat have already started and I am dreading summer. Whine whine whine.. sorry

    4 here.

    Keep in mind that zone reflects the average coldest temp in each area - it's not the number of growing days or first and last frost dates.

    All the gardening books and sites claim I'm in zone 9, but I think it's more likely that I'm 8b. Onion sets are up and soon to be salad onions, tomatoes and peppers are huge, beans climbing for all they're worth, I'll be eating my own lettuces within three weeks and I'm already enjoying fresh herbs. Round two is occupying the seed trays and I'm busy hunting for more room.

    Zone 3b. The only one to vote '3' so far. I hope there are more out there! Snow is almost all gone! Everything is wet and muddy. No perenials or anything coming up yet. Everything is very brown still. But I'm happy with brown, I was tired of white. :D
