Hello from Wichita Falls, TX. We are 30 min. from Red River/Oklahoma and about 45 min. south of Lawton, OK. We are located on the edge between the Southern South Region and the Northeastern Desert Region. I personally call it the Twilight Zone for more ways than one. Is there anyone else from this area?

Hello there, cin18868, welcome to the forum! glad you\'re here

I am not from your area or familiar with it, but you appear to be in zone 7A (my zone!), according to this:

http://www.garden.org/zipzone/index.php

I did a zipcode search for Wichita Falls and used the above link to look up your zone. Hope that helps. flower

Welcome aboard!!

I would say to monitor and learn both zones. You will likely be caught in the middle very often. You will have characteristics of both zones....and have to adjust a little accordingly.

That is good advice. Many of us live in "microclimates" where conditions can vary widely.... I'm in something of the same boat, as I sometimes think I'm more 6B than 7A. Probably one of the best things you can do is visit local nurseries and farmers' markets and ask your vendors what their experiences have been.

If you go by Zip Codes, Wichita Falls, TX is just barely in the Upper South Region.

Just so you know, we are very flexible about Regions.

.Regional forums were established for members to find other members who live in similar climate zones, in order to discuss local conditions such as weather, pests, and retail sources. Our breakdown of geographical zones is similar to those defined by the National Garden Association. It wouldn't be feasible to define every single climate zone in the U.S. The geographical regions give you a place to begin looking for gardeners in similar climates.

You may fit perfectly into a region. Or, you may live in a border state in one region, but your climate better matches the state next door which is in another region. Participate in both regions, and you'll soon know which one most closely matches your climate.

You don't have to join a region; you can participate in any region you'd like, or not at all. They are there for your convenience.

Please feel free to participate in any Region, we are just happy you joined us.

I think the overwhelming tendency is to take part in whatever thread catches your interest! The only really standout exception would be the monthly updates that the Regional Hosts make -- that seems to draw a mostly-regional response as everyone talks about what they're up to this month.

Similarly, things like compost and pest control and disease control seem to be *mostly* across-the-board topics that everyone is interested in.

That is so true, also don't let someone else's failures deter you, I have had success with things that are not supposed to grow in my zone.
