BHG REgions - where am I?
Thanks for writing. When it comes to gardening content like this, regions don't have a hard-and-fast map because the regions are based on climate conditions, where different groups of plants grow well, etc. So some gardeners won't have a single region, instead, they'll find it best to draw tips, plant suggestions, etc. from two or maybe even three different regions.
That said, your area most closely aligns with the plants and climate of the Midwest. But you might also sometimes find good information relevant to you in the content for the South.
