Research and choose the best varieties for your area. Start by finding your hardiness zone- http://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/PHZMWeb/. Ask neighbors and friends about their favorite choices. Check with your County or State Extension office or website for help in choosing what grows well in your area. If in doubt “Ask a Master Gardener”.
