What zone is the Niagara area?
I'm possibly moving from Toronto to Fort Erie, which is just south of Niagara Falls, and west of Buffalo NY, and wondering exactly how my gardening will change.
What makes that area able to grow grapes for wine? It must me warmer than zone 5, no? And yet they seem to get a lot more snow and cold temps in the winter, at least that's what it seems like when you watch the news, lol.
I've noticed at a friend's house in Buffalo, everything seems greener way before it does here in Toronto. Her daffodils are usually finished by the time mine start, and she can grow snowdrops to the extent my parents used to grow them in England. Here I've never had any luck with them.
Any advice or opinions are appreciated!
