Welcome to the website for the Master Gardner Association of the Central Rappahannock Area (MGACRA)! We are a volunteer group of Master Gardeners that support the Virginia Cooperative Extension in offering horticultural-related education and assistance to the people within the counties of Caroline, King George, Spotsylvania, and Stafford and the City of Fredericksburg.
I hope you are staying warm this winter, curled up with your gardening books and planning the next growing season.
If winter has been harsh to your garden, this publication from the Cooperative Extension might help — Managing Winter Injury to Trees and Shrubs: http://pubs.ext.vt.edu/426/426-500/426-500_pdf.pdf
You can now count education credit for up to 2 hours of pre-approved online education each year! The on-line modules and webinars must be approved ahead of time, and you must complete the quiz at the end if there is one.

Hardiness Zone Map
The USDA has released a new hardiness zone map that more accurately reflects lowest temperatures. The new map updates the 1990 version and is based on data across 30 years and considers changes in elevation, proximity to large bodies of water and extremes of terrain. An interactive, online version of the new map can be found here: http://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/PHZMWeb/
