Wondering when it will be safe to transplant your seedlings out into the garden? Here’s a handy chart to give you a guideline for the Last Frost Date in your area.
The Last Frost Date is the date after which it is generally safe to plant outdoors without fear of frost. Some plants can handle (and maybe even benefit from) a smidge of frost, such as broccoli, peas and chard. Warm season plants such as tomatoes, squash and peppers will be damaged, possibly beyond recovery, by frost.
If you live in Michigan you already know that the weather can be fickle, so treat these dates as a guideline only and be sure to check the weather forecast before transplanting your precious plants out into the wide world!
