You no longer have to worry if you're planting your warm-weather crops too early thanks to a new gardening calculator that tells you what and when to plant based on your area code. Those with green thumbs know the pains of having to re-grow their garden because the city saw one more frosty day than expected.
By plugging your zip code into a simple online calculator, found through popular gardening website Dave's Garden, gardeners will be able to see all the dates that prove to be vital for a healthy garden. Based on your area code, this city-specific tool can tell you what is and isn't in season, as well as when the frost-free season starts for New York, versus somewhere like Portland.
This online tool makes gardening and sustainable eating more accessible for city-dwellers, and improves the success of the most avid gardeners.
