The winter-hardiness indication, that is given with each plant, is based on winterconditions in the lowland of north west Europa.
Winter-hardiness is not only determined by the minimum temperature, but for instance also by winter wetness (especially for alpine plants). We have tried to keep different factors in mind with the winter-hardiness indication. Plants with limited winter-hardiness need some kind of protection.
