Thank you for your question. Planting dates vary from year to year and by location around the state. The Department of Agriculture collects temperature data from stations across the state. This data is averaged and compiled into one list that provides the probability of a frost on various dates. There will always be variation from year to year.

Here is the current data summary, which includes averages for the last frost in the Baltimore area.
