Gardening With Global Warming

Plants across the nation are affected by global warming. You have probably seen that many plants in your backyard are blooming earlier. Global warming will mean that many native and iconic plants may no longer find suitable climate conditions in major portions of their historic range. Click on your state at this site to check out your area.

Many gardeners are familiar with the USDA's garden zone maps. They help us know which plants to put in our backyards. They are determined by examining rainfall patterns, sunshine and temperature. The National Arbor Day Foundation has updated the map to reflect recent trends. Check the map to see how your area is affected.
