This week's question of the week:
Q: I see on these plant cards something that refers to "Zones". What does it mean?
A: It is the standard to determine which plants are most likely to thrive at a location. For example, you can plant most plants that can be planted in zone 6 or below and for the most part, they are perennials, which means they come back every year. You may find plants at a local nursery that are zone 7 or higher. They can still be planted in Santa Fe, but only as an annual, which means they would have to be replanted every year. Santa Fe County is between Zone 5-6, depending on which part of the County you live in.
