The Q&A Archives: Frost Date

Question: Can you tell me my last frost date so I can start sowing seeds indoors?

Answer: New Jersey's last frost date is usually sometime between April 10 and April 30--since you weren't more specific with your location I can't be any more specific than that. Southern and coastal areas will be on the earlier side, inland and northern on the later side. (It is only an approximation anyway.) <br><br>You should be able to start most of your seeds any time now. Generally, start tomato seeds 6 to 8 weeks before the last frost date; peppers, eggplant, and many flowers can be started slightly earlier. I'd wait a week or two for squash, for example.<br><br>
