Campbell River Zone for Winter Temperatures

Wed, 2014-05-07

Campbell River is generally a zone 7. Some winters we experience temperatures to the limit of our zone, the coldest I remember being -17 Celsius and even a few zone 7 plants can fail when that happens.

Some of our gardeners claim that their gardens are zone 8. This may be true if they live close to the water and have homes with courtyards or other protected areas. 

Our experience tells us that if you choose plants for zone 7 or colder you will have less loses due to cold winter weather. 

Zones Fahrenheit Celsius
1  below -50  below -46
2 -50 to -40  -46 to -40
3  -40 to -30  -40 to -34
4  -30 to -20  -34 to -29
5  -20 to -10  -29 to -23
6 -10 to 0  -23 to -18
7 0 to 10 -18 to -12
8  10 to 20 -12 to -7
9   20 to 30   -7 to -1
10  30 to 40  -1 to 4
