garden tip: wellesley hardiness zone

as winter approaches it is good to know the hardiness zone relative to your plants survival this winter…

wellesley hardiness zone is 6, but the zones are further broken down into a and b zone, and the town straddles 6a and 6b, meaning that the winter lows can range between -10 and 0 degrees

last winter was an anomaly, with temperatures dropping as low as -25, and it did in fact wipe out a few of my plants— most depressing was the loss of my lilac that came from my grandmother’s house in Burns, Oregon, but the majority survived thanks to the blanket of snow insulating the ground
