The Q&A Archives: Last Frost Date

Question: i was just wondering how i go about finding the last frost date for my area? which is philadelphia, PA.

thank you for your time.


Answer: The average frost date is a helpful guide in starting seeds and setting out a garden, however do keep in mind that the actual date can vary depending on the weather that particular year as well as on the conditions and surroundings in your own garden. Your county extension should be able to provide you with the dates for spring and fall in your area. Their telephone number is 471-2200. Alternatively, your local weather personnel for tv or radio should be able to tell you.
