I'm from NY - zone 5 but I have a place in the Catskills where I garden which is much more like zone 4. With this year's warm winter - january temps in the mid 60's - it seems much more like zone 8! I would like to let new yorkers know about a class coming up at Wave Hill Gardens on the medicinal and culinary uses of Aloe and Agave. The class is on March 5th at 2 p.m. and is free with admission to the Garden (Admission is $4.00 for adults).
