Gardening Interview Questions and Answers

 

Seed packets and planting guides often say to plant when danger of frost has passed. How do I know when that is?

In your area, April 30 is the projected date for the last killing frost, according to a map published in U.S. Department of Agriculture �Home and Garden Bulletin 202.� This date could differ as much as one to two weeks within 10 miles of your home. It is best to check with your county Extension agent or local weather bureau. Keep in mind that this is the average date for the last frost that will kill established perennials to ground level. When installing tender plants or sowing seeds, wait a few weeks so the soil can warm to a safe temperature.
