Viburnum tinus is a zone 7 plant, but I would like to try it here in my 6, just wondering what your in for a reference.

Thank You



Hi Okiegardengirl and welcome to GoY we don't have 'zones' in the UK as this is a maritime climate. Perhaps some of our US GoYers can help you.

Most of Britain is Zone 8, with a tiny bit up in Scotland in Zone 7, and the west of Ireland and a small area of West Wales and West England in Zone 9. Plants are never sold here by Zones, and this system is not generally used here. I just happen to have a book on container gardening that shows the zones for the UK and most of Europe!

Some people say the climate here has some similarities to that in the Pacific Northwest.
