Mid-Atlantic last frost dates (and related handy links for U.S. and Canada)

Post  Megan on 2/20/2011, 7:15 am

This is a summary of last frost date and planning information for the Mid-Atlantic region, but I've also added general information at the end.

Please forgive terse descriptions, I managed to chop my fingertip off last night Rolling Eyes so typing is a bit difficult.

Enjoy the links, there is good information here. Happy gardening! flower

Wow thank you Megan for the links! I will take pictures of my garden when I get things going.

I know gardening is going to be a fun adventure...and I'm sure there will be lots of amusement also.

You're welcome, moosedroppings. Smile If you can keep a sense of humor most of the time, that's half the battle right there! Smile

Great post!

Sorry I missed this the first time around as well as the sticky request.

I split it up and made 3 stickies one in Canada, one in General SFG (because we don't have a general US forum, just regions) and a Mid Atlantic one.

If I screwed it up or missed something or put something in a place that doesn't make sense let me know and I can fix it for you. Smile
