What is the hardiness zone in Minnesota?

We are in Zone 4. This means we can grow plants hardy to Zones 4, 3, and 2. Zone 5 is warmer in the winter, so Zone 5 plants will need extra winter protection to survive and even then these conditions are questionable.

How much sunlight is full sun?

When can I plant for spring?

We suggest waiting to plant annuals once temperatures have reached above 50 and 60 degrees, this way the soil is thawed and your plants have room to grow. However, there are early blooming annuals that can be outside prior, like pansies and violas. A popular time in Minnesota to plant annuals is around the end of May.
