In reference to Richard Shehorn's question regarding weather zones:

The zones being mentioned are the USDA plant hardiness zones, which are
commonly found in many seed catalogs (Park's, Burpee, White's etc). They
are also found in many gardening books. Delaware is listed as
predominately zone 7, with a small portion being zone 6. Don't know
where you live in Delaware, but if you look it up in a seed catalog, you
might want to get your magnifying glass. It is difficult to distinguish
the borders.
These zones are related to average minimum temperatures in that area, &
thus give an idea of what plants will be winter hardy there (though you
probably already have a pretty good idea of what will, and won't, grow).
