When can I plant Chervil in Zone 1a

One of the first steps we take when we are making a decision about our gardening schedule is find our USDA Zone info. The most important data that the zone info tells us is average last frost and the lowest expected temperature for our area.

You can figure out when it's a good idea to plant chervil in Zone 1a by reviewing the USDA zone info.

The last month that you can plant chervil and expect a good harvest is probably July. You probably don't want to wait any later than that or else your chervil may not have a chance to fully mature. You can get started a couple of weeks earlier by starting your chervil indoors.

Last Frost Date

On average the last frost has passed is on June 15 in Zone 1a. It might get as low as -60°F during the coldest months of winter.

Remember that USDA zone info for Zone 1a is not always accurate and our actual date of last frost will vary from year to year. Since half of the time in Zone 1a last frost occurs after June 15 be ready to cover your chervil if we have a surprise late frost.
