The Q&A Archives: Reading the Burpee Catalog Zone Map

Question: According to all the other zone maps I've seen, they say that I live in zone 9 or 9b. However, the zone map you use in your catalog is confusing. It seems to state that I live in zone 10! I am in South central Florida on the east coast. Which is right? E. Dennis Correa Sebastian, FL

Answer: From the USDA map I have on my wall (2'x 2' map), Sebastian is firmly in zone 9b. The map in the catalog was reduced so much it's hard to tell accurately which zone you're in.
