THIS TOOL helps calculate when. Begin by entering your final spring frost date on the top right of the chart.

For most of the area in and around Ottawa, the stated frost free date is between May 2 and May 31.   In recent years the frost free date has been advancing towards the first of May from the traditional May 24th date used in the past. Check to see when the last frost date is for your zone.  Presently, the last average frost date for Ottawa is May 11th.  This can vary greatly.  If you are a conservative gardener and not a gambler move this date ahead to at least May 20.
