The Q&A Archives: which region am I..

Question: I was looking on this site, I live in Alaska and it does not give me that region choice on your map. I know we are in zone 8 but which region should I choose to get the best advice for me?

Answer: Actually, you are in USDA zone 4 so plants that will grow well in zone 4 will grow for you on the Kenai peninsula. If you're looking for a regional report, choose the Pacific Northwest. Gardening climates and challenges are similar, as are discussions of plants that enjoy short growing seasons and cool summer weather.
