Zone 4 Released

As a Montana transplant who has recently suffered through frost-bitten spinach, hypothermic cilantro, and watching a layer of snow drift with funereal finality on my definitely dead basil sprouts, I sometimes wonder, “Can anything grow here?” The questioned seemed largely hypothetical until I saw the plant-packed cover of the all new Zone 4> magazine.

Bozeman-based husband-and-wife team Dan and Andra Spurr created the magazine, which launched in February, to address the special challenges of gardening and landscaping in our alpine clime, known to gardeners and farmers as zone 4. Spanning Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and part of Utah, zone 4 translates roughly into, “Yes, we have no bananas.” But as the Spurrs's 78-page debut issue shows, we do have red poppies (Papaver rhoeas), lawns of creeping thyme (Thymus sepyllum), and squash (Cucurbita). With the advice of seasoned gardeners, horticulture experts, and published gardening authors, Zone 4 is a one-of-a-kind resource for established and aspiring green thumbs in the area.
