The Q&A Archives: Zone Specific Information

Question: Althouth I listed Elko as my location my garden is actually in Spring Creek NV zone 3. I need to know if there is any gardening manuals and or planting guides that deal with cold weather short season plants and trees? I go through these planting books to find two or three cold weather plants. We get temps down to 20 below and heat into the 90s but a short season of warm weather.

Answer: I suggest you contact your County Cooperative Extension office. Look under your county's name, or University of Nevada in the phone book. They will have lists of recommended plants that will work in your area's growing conditions. Good luck!
