What ends the growing season in Virginia?
Virginia’s growing season doesn’t have a defined date; the date range varies from region to region. The growing season is defined as the portion of the year in which local weather conditions—such as rainfall and temperature—allow for normal plant or crop growth.
The growing season refers to the days between the last frost/freeze in the springs and the first frost/freeze in the fall.
In southwest and central Virginia, the average first frost/freeze date typically occurs in October.
