The Q&A Archives: Zone

Question: I am in the Mid-Atlantic part of the state, Long Island New York. I was wondering what zone am I in?

Answer: Here is a link to the official zone map along with explanations of what the zones mean in terms of gardening.

You are probably a zone 7 location (unless you are in a windy or exposed location), although a conservative gardener would play it safe and consider it to be a warm zone 6. You might check with a gardening neighbor and see what they consider your microclimate to be.
