Seems to be missing. Could help expand content for gardening.

Maybe the second proposal should be "USDA hardiness zone" only and other properties created when needed, maybe it's sufficient to differentiate by value only.

Please help complete the proposals (Add your motivation for this property here.) --- Jura 11:58, 25 January 2020 (UTC)

@Juandev: you might be interested, I came across your comments on Wikidata talk:WikiProject Botany. --- Jura 13:33, 4 February 2020 (UTC)


  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment This sound valuable, however it would be good to have more complete proposals - do you have sources for example for this data? Also I think this can be generic, not confined to USDA. ArthurPSmith (talk) 23:31, 27 January 2020 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I second the comment above, the property is good, but can be elaborated further prior to criation. Maybe creating items for a few examples, as the new item for "half-hardy" mentioned above, could also help to make the proposal clearer. TiagoLubiana (talk) 18:30, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
    • I will try to add more samples, but some users don't seem to like that one creates items such as the ones mentioned above before actual use. Don't hesitate to add samples as well. --- Jura 10:13, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
  • @Jura: Please split the proposals. They should be discussed separately. Thanks. --Succu (talk) 18:48, 28 January 2020 (UTC)
    • Ok, I inserted additional headers, but I don't think they should be created independently. I'd rather not have one created, but not the other. --- Jura 10:13, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
