I'm moving to WA state (from MD) in a few months and am planning a garden this year. What zone is western WA in and what grows well and doesn't grow well here? Any good web sites that can help?
Congratulations on your move! I don't know much about the Pacific Northwest but I do get a catalog from a company that specializes in vines,trees, shrubs,etc that are perfect for that area. 90% of their products bear edible fruit along with being pretty! I love browsing through their catalog on these cold winter days.
Their catalog and website also has a lot of info on gardening in your area of the US. I noticed they hold seminars and gatherings which you might be able to attend once you move.
Hope this helps, http://www.raintreenursery.com/
