All the dates in this site have been adjusted for the area you live in, .

We use five date zones for gardeners, your town is in zone . As an example of how the date changing works, test it out on the phrase below which corresponds to your current selection:
Start sprouting seed potatoes during the third week of February in the area.
Now examine the towns below, each of which is in a different zone, and you will see that the date for sprouting potatoes is different dependent on which zone the town is in.
St Austell, UK - zone 1 - the third week of January
Springfield, Illinois - zone 2 - the first week of February
Westmont, Illinois - zone 3 - the third week of February
Toulon, Illinois - zone 4 - the first week of March
Alpena, Michigan - zone 5 - the second week of March
