Is the threat of frost still real or are my plants finally safe?


Hi there, the average 10% chance of a killing frost for the valley is usually around May 8, however - this year is a little different as we have not really even had a winter! Everything seems to be about 3 weeks ahead of schedule so take that into consideration when thinking about the average last frost date.
