Zone 6 Vegetable Planting Guide Posted on 09 Dec 09:20 , 0 comments

Zone 6 has slightly longer growing window for gardening compared to Zones 3 and 4. With a last frost date as early as March 30th and first frost date as late as September 30th. First and last frost days may vary by 2 weeks (or more depending on the weather).


If you'd like to get a jump-start on Spring and Fall planting, it is possible to extend your season by starting seeds indoors. A simple setup might be a shop light over a table or as elaborate as a heated greenhouse or multiple racks with lights.

We hope that our USDA Zone Specific planting guide with be a helpful tool in your garden planning and planting!
