What is a Plant Grow Zone?
The Plant Hardiness Zone is determined by the USDA which specifies the standard by which gardeners & growers know which plants are most likely to thrive in their area. In the header of PlantVine there is a section that shows your zip code and zone. If we have your zip code wrong, you can update it to show your current grow zone.
How will I know that the plants that I order will survive in my Zone?
When searching on PlantVine we automatically use your zip code to determine which zone you belong to. You will see an alert on plant pages that are out of your zone. You can also search for and filter plants that are in your zone by clicking on “Shop” and then selecting the zone in the filter section. Zone is only relevant for plants planted outdoors, not interior plants.
Can I order plants that are not in my Zone?
Yes, you can. When completing your order or viewing items in your cart, we let you know which plants do not grow within your Zone. We understand that plants can be given as gifts or even stored indoors & thrive very well indoors. PlantVine is not responsible for any plant that is planted outside of its correct zone. Some tropical plants that can grow indoors may require a humidifier in dry climates.
Why do we need your zip code?
Entering your zip code allows PlantVine to correctly display plants that thrive within your correct zone.
