Plant Hardiness Zone 3 is found throughout parts of Alaska and the northern United States. Zone 3 is characterized by low temperatures, typically high winds and higher altitude. With the average minimum temperature falling between -40 and -30 degrees F, Zone 3 has a relatively short growing season. If you are located in Zone 3, consider starting seeds indoors and then transplanting once the soil and air temperatures increase. Using Gilmour’s growing calendar will give you a better idea as to which plants are most likely to thrive in your area, but you can also take additional steps to ensure the health of your garden like using row covers to protect from frost.
