help needed from gardeners

The Canadian Forest Service has embarked on an ambitious project called Going Beyond the Zones. They've set up a site where gardeners across Canada and the Northern US are encouraged to report information about the hardy plants in their gardens.

The project is a follow-up to the 2001 revision of the Canadian Plant Hardiness Zone Map. After enough information is gathered on each plant species or cultivar, a really nifty mapping program can generate a hardiness range map specific to each type. What's really needed right now are lots of gardeners to participate and report on the plants that they are growing.

Registration on the site is free and only takes a few moments. Full details about the project may be seen on the link above. Once there, select the language of your choice and the page will pop right up
