The first step any gardener should take is to understand the area in which you live. The zones in which a person lives greatly determines when to plant, what kinds of plants work best, the germination period of certain plants, and how to keep your garden alive. Since I live in Bemidji, Minnesota I will focus my article on the plants and techniques that work best on zone 3.

Thanks to the National Gardening Association (NGA) anyone can look up their regional zone. The USDA Hardiness Zone Map is a type of map that was developed to catalog critical climate information such as rainfall and the year-round temperatures. The USDA map is the most used in North America. It is not a perfect map but it is beneficial for the Eastern United States.

What is a zone?
Well a zone is a tool gardeners use that shows the climate of an area. It helps to find plants that can take up permanent residence in your garden year-after-year.

What is the best fertilizer?
