If you are interested in gardening from the soil up, this map will guide you to your planting zone according to the climate in your local area, according to the USDA. http://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/
That established, you can use that map, or else you could input your zip code to the handy zone calculator on the deal's website, to find where you are, or your loved one is, who you may be gifting the seeds of great things. Or roots, bulbs, whatnot.
Strawberries have several varieties and this is one example. Others are presented for the same price also. This particular example is plantable in late March/early April in zones 4 through 8. Hence the map.
But if you feel adventurous or are waiting impatiently for the next time you can put a Strawberry root into the ground, here is something to look forward to. They will take your order now, and ship beginning late March when it is time for the planting.
Volume discounts are available for three or more,$12.37.
