Online Tool Tells Gardeners What to Plant This Fall

A new tool from motherearthnews.com allows gardeners to input their locale and find out what to plant in the specific gardening zone.

Because any location can contain specific microclimates that will vary, the tool enables individuals to find out what’s right for their exact spot, according to the website.

Site visitors click on the tab View Planting Dates to bring up a list of crops ready to be planted at various times throughout the year.

Although knowing one’s gardening zone goes a long way toward knowing what to plant and when, the motherearthnews.com tool pinpoints conditions to one’s home turf, upping the chances of gardening success.
