Plant Hardiness Zones in New Mexico
Areas in New Mexico Where Plants Are Most Likely to Thrive
Not all plants thrive under the same temperature and climate conditions. Therefore, it is important to know your state’s climate zone so you know what plants you can successfully grow there. Most gardeners use the USDA Hardiness Zone Map to determine what plants thrive in a specific location. The map is based on the average annual minimum winter temperature, divided into 10-degree F zones. Below is the growing zone for New Mexico. New Mexico is known for its mild and semi-arid climate. Precipitation is light and sunlight is abundant. The time in which you should plant your seeds or transplant them outside depends on what planting zone in New Mexico you live in. We recommend growing quinoa, lettuce, sweet peppers, watermelon, and squash here.
