Default Planting before last frost

I have some seeds that state to plant before last frost.What exactly does that mean? Is it anytime before last frost? For example ,I was going to plant them last weekend but heard we were getting some snow so I put it off.

well I took a chance and put one packet in the ground yesterday,and woke up to a light dusting of snow on the ground this morning.Hopefully we don't get any more snow after they start to sprout,that's what I was worried about.

It depends where you are located. In my area (davis county, Utah) the last frost date is in may. Some things can go in before then, like peas and carrots, and onions, and potatoes. Other things have to wait until later. My local garden center puts out a calendar with general planting dates for various vegetables. It's http://www.bountifulgardencenter.com...enCalendar.pdf

I'd look around and see if your area has something similar.

What was stumping me is that it says to plant BEFORE last frost.I didn't know how soon before the last frost would be ok to plant them.Gave it a try and now just have to wait and see.Doesn't help that this winter has been the most mild winter that I ever remember .
