EXPLANATIONS

USDA zones are zones of minimum winter temperatures, roughly speaking any plant with a number 7 or less is pretty well hardy anywhere in the UK, zone 8 is hardy but some plants may need a bit of protection in particularly exposed or cold areas, zone 9 to be grown outdoors only in urban or coastal areas unless given a lot of protection, zone 10 not for outdoors in winter
