Zone 4 Vegetable Planting Guide Posted on 26 Nov 09:45 , 0 comments

Zone 4 has one of the shortest growing window for gardening in the US, With a last frost date of approx May 15th and first frost date of approx September 15. First and last frost days may vary by 2 weeks (or more depending on the weather).


Since the growing period for Zone 4 is so short, 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!
