Now that the final snow events of the winter season are mostly behind us, most are transitioning into warm season operations. As the winter and spring season battle it out, these early weeks of spring can be especially frustrating for landscapers. Mother Nature often “tricks” sprouting flowers with warm and sunny days only to be followed by a hard freeze overnight. However, by definition, the growing season does not officially begin until we have seen our last freeze of the winter. But when does that typically happen? See the chart below to find out.

 

Of course, these dates are just an average so to get a better date range of the final freeze, we’ve also included a table showing the all-time latest date each of these Northeast cities have dipped to or even below the freezing mark.
