The Q&A Archives: Last Frost In NYC

Question: I want to try starting seeds indoors for the first time. How do I find out when the last spring frost is. I live in NYC zone 7.

Answer: Surprisingly enough, frost dates are a separate issue from zones. The zone reflects the average winter low temperature in your area and the frost date can vary widely within a zone. You can check frost dates here: but do remember it is just a guide -- the frost date will vary from year to year. Good luck with your seeds!
