Hi: Can anyone out there help me? For years I always thought we lived in zone 3a. When I checked the map on this site, it looks to me like we are in zone 2b. I checked another site, for tulip bulbs and it puts me back in zone 3. I live in Winnipeg. I'm confused - please help.

Hi Barbara, the zone map did go through some changes in 2000 and there were some major changes - you can actually see both zone maps at: http://sis.agr.gc.ca/cansis/nsdb/climate/hardiness/intro.html

on the old map it showed winnipeg as 3a and the new one as 2b

the thing about zones are they are meant only to be a guideline - not cut in stone - there isn't a gardener alive that doesn't "push" the zones - so use the information as a guide ... and enjoy...

Thanks. I was beginning to think I was losing it. I agree that we gardeners generally use the zone maps as a guideline, but sometimes it helps when ordering some of the newer hybrids. Thanks again for the info.
