The average last frost date in Washington DC is typically the last week of April. You can safely plant your annuals and vegetables around May first. There are some cold tolerant plants (peas, beans, snapdragons, stock, sweetpeas, etc.) that can be planted in early to mid-April. Check the plant tags or backs of the seed packets to make sure they don't mind chilly weather. The rest of your plants can safely go into the ground about the first of May. Enjoy your garden!
