The Q&A Archives: Last Frost Date for Columbia, MD

Question: What is the "frost date" for Columbia, MD? My son is planting a garden as a boy scout project, and we don't want to plant too soon. Thank you. Sherri Sirotkin Columbia, MD

Answer: The last expected frost date in Columbia, MD is around April 15th, but check your National Weather Service at the local airport to get an actual date. You can start planting our cool season vegetables and flowers such as broccoli, lettuce, carrots snapdragons and peas then. Wait another week or so for the warm season crops of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers.
