Average frost and freeze dates for plants - WHSV
The average last frost date for our West Virginia locations is at the end of May.
It's also more than just frost or freezing temperatures.
With so many people working from home or staying at home now, you might be taking on more spring projects, like getting the garden ready.
Even with warm sunny spring days, it's still too early for those new plants though. That includes most vegetables (anything that's not cold hardy) and any new flowers or plants.
Arlene Reid, with Glenhaven Greenhouse, explains why you'll want to resist that temptation and wait.
"Plants that are planted when the ground is warmer will grow, they take off when the soil finally warms up. The roots do not like to be in cold soil. Plants just don't like cold feet."
"One of the dangers in planting now, is if we have a freeze instead of a frost, there's not much you can do. You can cover or protect plants from a frost, but a freeze gets into the plant and damages it."
The average last freeze for the Shenandoah Valley is the end of April; for West Virginia, this is into mid-May.
We can typically get frost through at least mid-May in the Valley,... Mar 19, 2020

MYSTERY PLANT: Mystery Plant is a member of the mustard family - Aiken Standard
The best turnips to cook seem to be those that are crisp and shiny and not too big.Turnips are grown in many parts of the world, most temperate areas of both hemispheres. They are a coolish weather crop and don’t take heat very well. Plants are easily grown, sow (!) they say, early in the spring. These are biennial plants, in that they do their vegetative “thing” in the first season following sprouting, with a lot of energy put into the developing taproot, containing lots of water and carbohydrates. But there are also those gorgeous greens, full of wonderful things. If the taproots are left in the ground, the plant will wait until the second year’s growth to put up a flowering stalk. The flowers are characteristic of the mustard family … four sepals and four petals (bright yellow in this case). If the flowers are left alone, the plants will set fruit, forming slender pods each with several seeds. Turnip seeds (and those of turnips’ relatives) are rich in oils and themselves provide a useful harvest.Other members of the mustard family tend to share a somewhat peppery taste, especially in the leaves, a flavor which originates in certain sulfur-containing compounds within the plants … these compounds probably aid in keeping hungry insects away. Cultivated mustard is a member of the family, which also includes cabbage, bok-choy, cress, kohlrabi and wasabi. Those great big wax-covered rutabagas that you see in the store are actually a hybrid between turnip and cabbage.Turnips have, I think, earned something of a culinary reputation as an earthy sort of food source, without many frills. Of course they are delightful by themselves or with other veggies: Himmel und Erde from Germany features turnips cooked with potatoes and apples. And there is a simple puree of turnips, leeks and pears, served steaming with a dollop of sour cream and some chives. Hey, even I can fix that … perfect for one of these blustery, late-...

Mild winter lacking snow leads to early spring flowers - WKYT
Bradford pear trees, our flowering trees, a lot of our ornamentals."
Those vibrant colors and comfortable temperatures don't come without a downside.
"We didn't have a lot of cold weather to kill off our insects and so we very well could see a huge influx in insect populations. Disease as well," Davis said. "With all of our temperatures and moisture it is just perfect conditions for it to develop so it's really important that we do some good cultural practices."

Care For Cold Damaged Plants - goldsborodailynews.com
However, to see significant reduction in fruiting on these plants would take several days of freezing weather, not just a drop in temperatures over one night.
So, the big question is what do gardeners do for plants if we see cold damage? It will usually take a few weeks to see damage from cold temperatures. It is best to wait, give the plants time to recover before assessing the damage. Even though you may see damage early, do not prune anything for a few weeks. It will take some time for any damage to be apparent. After a few weeks, damaged or dead growth can be removed. Pruning is optional and will not help the plant deal with damage. It is generally better to delay hard pruning of trees and shrubs until new growth begins so you can more accurately determine which parts survived. If you do prune, make sure branches are dead before removing. You can determine if branches are dead by scratching the bark with your thumbnail. If tissue underneath is green, it’s still alive. If plant tissue is tan or brown, the plant material is dead. When pruning damaged branches, start at the top and work your way down to see how far back plant was killed. Don’t be too quick to give up or get discouraged with cold damaged plants. Even with plant material that was frozen, many will recover by putting out new growth in the spring and summer. It may take longer for new growth to emerge as it takes time for the plant to recover.
For fruiting plants, such as blueberries, strawberries and fruit trees, it can be a wait and see game to determine fruit loss. It will depend on how cold and how long the plants stay cold as to if any cold damage occurs. Many fruiting plants see damage when temperatures are at 30 to upper 20’s. However, blueberries and strawberries do not open all their blossoms at ...
