    I have often wondered if this sort of thing would be a good idea, but after looking at it, it doesnt seem very workable. My climate is completely different to that of a friend over on the east coast. They are at least 6 weeks ahead of us and funnily enough another friend who lives further south but on the west coast says their climate is nicer than here too.
    The far north of NZ is completely different again and so too the very bottom of the South Island.

    The map is still a great idea, i just think its a bit too generalised to be really useful.

    I agree with mischief, far to generalized and then there is the fact that current "USDA Hardiness Zones" are out of date and seem to be changing.
    I use a "soil Orders by Continent" map instead, that way you are at least accounting for soil type.
    If you can find a climate pattern map that too would give good information that could be useful for determining what will grow in your area.
