Cool resource for y'all northerners but it sure doesn't work for Florida!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Hmmm... Yes, now that you mention it, it says it's for hardiness zone 5, which is the more northern states. Too bad they don't do other zone versions... but given it's a Wiki article, it was likely just put together by someone in that zone...

I modified the subject line for clarity - and to avoid unnecessarily disappointing my more southerly located beek friends!

It is possible to get an idea of where your temp zone is by using the heating degrees in the information. I have looked at this before and just use about a two to four week adjustment for my area a little bit North of that zone.
