Frost proof shrubs ?

Deirdre Hoffman asked 11 years ago

Looks as if I’ll be replacing several plants after the recent weather. Can you suggest any shrubs which can stand up to the -6 to – 15 weather in my East facing, Co. Meath garden.Is there a rule of thumb as Regards the zones in which plants are assumed ‘hardy’, even to the extremes of temperature we have had ?

The USDA Hardiness Zone system is used by lots of books and it shows Ireland has a narrow strip of Zone 8 around the coast and the rest is Zone 7 including Co. Meath.

If you  go to our plant finder list, you will find plants classified as fully hardy and these will be okay in your area.
