What Planting Zone Is Toms River?

TheGardenLady received this question from Beth:

What planting zone is Toms River in? By the maps it appears to be inbetween 6 and 7.

Toms River is in Zone 7. The newest hardiness Zone Map clearly shows this.

In another location of the arborday.org site, it specifically shows Toms River as Zone 7.  See here.

To understand how these maps are made you can read the information on the American Horticultural Society site that also has a map that can be downloaded or bought.  See here.

And always consider contacting the Toms River, NJ local Master Gardener helpline at 732 349 1245- in the Toms River Area they are open from 9am-12noon during the week.
