When can I plant Myosotis in Zone 1b

The USDA Zone info is a great tool for gardeners to help us determine our gardening schedule. The zone info helps tell us things like average date of last frost and lowest expected temperature for our area.

In Zone 1b you can determine when to plant myosotis by checking out the USDA zone info.

The last month that you can plant myosotis and expect a good harvest is probably July. You probably don't want to wait any later than that or else your myosotis may not have a chance to really do well. If you are starting your myosotis indoors then you might be able to get away with starting them a couple of weeks earlier.

Last Frost Date

The average date of last frost is June 15 in Zone 1b. It might get as low as -55°F during the coldest months of winter.

Since the USDA zone info for Zone 1b is not always accurate our actual date of last frost will vary from year to year. Half of the time in Zone 1b last frost occurs after June 15 so make sure that you are prepared to protect your myosotis in the event of one of those late frosts.
