    Hi all,
    Here is a link to a map of the UK with last frost dates. It makes really interesting reading.
    Ignore me if you know yours.
    It would be useful if anyone can verify the accuracy of the data.

    Average last frost date is a very misleading term, as it is implying that five years in ten it is later than that.

    If you are feeding yourself, you want a date that is after the last frost 19 years in twenty or better I would have thought. And for safety, probably closer to one in fifty years.

    10-20th March in NW London is probably about right as an average, but frosts in April are quite common here.
