The USDA has just released a new web tool to help gardeners determine their Plant Hardiness Zone.  Click on this link: ZONE MAP and type in your zip code to begin.  An interesting and informative article can be found by clicking on the "ABOUT" tab and then MAPS & GARDENING or just click on these red words to go right to the section.

Also, be sure to head to the Greenville Convention Center next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (February 3-5) for the annual Friends of the Shepard Memorial Library Book Sale.  You are sure to find some gardening books to add to your collection.  For more information on the sale the Daily Reflector lists the email contact as
