Average spring planting dates

So you have decided to take up planting trees, but you dont know when to plant them. Read on the topic here! In Know When to Plant What: Find Your Average Last Spring Frost Date by Cheryl Long, an article published in 2008, Long writes, The key factor that should guide your decisions is your average last spring frost date. Most cool season crops, like cabbage, broccoli, lettuce and many others, can tolerate a light frost and will grow best when sown a couple weeks before your last spring frost.
It is important to track the frost dates in your area in order to make sure your plants do not wither or freeze in springs transitioning weather. There are many websites that offer advice on the correct dates for optimum planting time depending on the plant. Most dates range from the end of March until the end of April. For instance, http://www.heirloomseeds.com/schedule.htm gives a detailed list of plants and vegetables that should be planted in specific times. Cheryl Long notes that, There are U.S. maps that show last frost dates, but its hard to find your exact local dates on them. Your best bet is the National Climatic Data Center. Choose your state and then locate the city nearest you, and it will show your average last spring (and first fall) frost dates, based upon weather data collected by the National Climatic Data Center from 1971 through 2000 from that location.
