How to get location and Zone to show in posts
a. Click on "PROFILE
" in the bar above.
b. On the left, under "Modify Profile" click "FORUM PROFILE INFORMATION
c. Put your location & zone information into "PERSONAL TEXT
" field (not "LOCATION"! I know that makes no sense).
.....an example might be "Austin, TX, Zone 8b"
d. Then (Important!) click on "CHANGE PROFILE
" at the bottom right.
Here is another excellent description of the process with some good pictures, but the pictures omit the steps between "FORUM PROFILE INFORMATION" and "CHANGE PROFILE"http://forum.earthbox.com/index.php?topic=283.msg1673#msg1673
You can get your zone location at the following places (or web search for [hardiness zone] and find lots of sites, but most link back to USDA or arborday): http://www.usna.usda.gov/Hardzone/hzm-se1.htmlhttp://www.arborday.org/treeinfo/zonelookup.cfmhttp://gurneys.com/article.asp?ai=665&bhcd2=1152912115
