help with garden zone!
This post is for future reference. I currently live in the upper (northern) part of the lower peninsula.
I did a search for zone 6 in MI via a zone map of the state. There are zone 6a, maybe 6b (don't know about 6b) on eastern side of MI (the thumb), that's further south than I am.
I did a search, can't find any cities in that area with zone 6a/6b, but according to the zone map there are cities in that area with that zone.
Can somebody help please? Whenever I try to do a zone search for that area, I'm still too far north; I don't know what cities are in that area, because I don't know the area very well.
Would prefer zone 6a/b as my zone because there's a longer growing season, gives me more options of what I can grow.
Here are links for reference, you'll have to manually copy and paste into browser.
When I say southern MI, I'm NOT referring to really far south like Lansing, near the bottom of the state. This is just for clarification.
