If your lucky enough to live in a place where it rarely snows, gets very cold, or it never fells all that cold, you probably live in USDA planting zone 8 or 9.

Planting in zone 7.
We absolutely love living and growing our plants in USDA planting zone 7. We are so lucky in that we can plant almost any time of the year, even in the dead of winter.

Cool season root growth helps our new fall or winter plantings survive the following summer season.
