Question:

When is the last frost date for us in Minnesota, Minneapolis area? Should I start my seedlings indoors now?

Answer:

Hi Mark,

The average last frost date in the city is May 6-11, Mother’s Day. Last year proved to be a chilly one with a hard frost on the weekend of Mother’s Day, sending us in a flurry to get all the tender tropicals inside for protection.
The best time to start seed is about 6 weeks before the last frost date, so by the end of March here in Minneapolis.
Whatever you do, don’t rush to get your seedlings into the ground in early May.
