When can I plant Myosotis in Zone 7a

One of the first steps we take when we are figuring out our gardening schedule is find our USDA Zone info. The zone info helps tell us things like average date of last frost and lowest expected temperature for our area.

By looking at the USDA zone info for Zone 7a it's possible to estimate when you can plant myosotis.

The earliest that you can plant myosotis in Zone 7a is February. However, you really should wait until March if you don't want to take any chances.

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

Last Frost Date

In Zone 7a the average date of last frost happens on April 15. We can expect an average low temperature of 0°F in the coldest months of winter.

Since the USDA zone info for Zone 7a is not always accurate our actual date of last frost can change quite a bit from year to year. Half of the time in Zone 7a last frost occurs after April 15 so always be ready to cover your myosotis if we have a late frost.
