The USDA Hardiness Zone Map divides North America into 11 separate zones; each zone is 10°F warmer (or colder) in an average winter than the adjacent zone. If you see a hardiness zone in a catalog or plant description, chances are it refers to the USDA map. To find your USDA Hardiness Zone or use the map below.

"Man - despite his artistic pretensions, his sophistication, and his many accomplishments - owes his existence to a six inch layer of topsoil and the fact it rains."

Who knew Irish Spring soap was good for more than just keeping you clean and smelling good?

As it turns out, the strong-smelling soap can be used to keep herbivores like deer away from your garden by cutting a bar into pieces, stuffing the pieces in socks and stapling the socks to stakes.

The final step is to plant the stakes throughout your garden, and that's all it takes to keep the pests away. It is also recommended scattering extra soap bits along the ground in the garden, as well.

And as an added bonus, it keeps the garden smelling fresh!

Next time you're looking to keep unwanted animals away from your produce, look no further than a bar of Irish Spring.
