The Q&A Archives: Estimating Last Frost Date

Question: How do I find out when the last frost date for my area is? I have heard that there are estimates for this, but not where to find it.

Answer: The most precise answer would probably come from your county extension office (473-2540). Keep in mind it is based on averages and some years are earlier and some later. The actual date in your garden is also affected by its microclimate, so the range is still just a guide. I would imagine they will tell you early to mid May.
