Gardening zones for beginners and advanced gardeners

Longwood Gardens, in a community that boasts of its diverse gardens, is hosting a workshop on the topic of growing your own plants.

The workshop will be held Tuesday, May 10, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Longwood Garden and Botanical Gardens.

The workshops are geared toward novice and advanced gardener alike.

Topics covered include growing plants from seed, seedlings, transplanting, pruning, and other basics of garden design.

If you have any questions, please call 956-637-7333.

“If you want to grow your own vegetables, there are some gardening zones you could try, but there are also a lot of other options out there,” said Longwood owner and director of gardens Eric McPherson.

“Gardening is not something you need to be trained for.”

There are more than 100 gardening zones in the Arizona area.

They range from the rural to the urban, from small gardens to large gardens.

Each garden zone has its own rules and regulations, so make sure to check the zone website for more details.

McPherton said there are two types of zones.

One has a lot less regulations and is open to the public, while the other has more rules and restrictions.

“The city doesn’t have a lot, and the county doesn’t,” he said.

“So what we are focusing on is the community-wide.”
