When the Ice Saints have passed, gardeners know it is safe to put their tender plants outside and they won't be killed off by a nasty frost.

It may sound like a new epic TV series set in a fantasy world of dragons and heroes, but in fact it is simply the rather exciting name given to the days of the last night frosts before the summer weather sets in properly. These days will differ depending on where you live. In the USA for example it is the days between the 11th and the 14th of May. When these days have passed, gardeners know it is safe to put their tender plants outside and they won't be killed off by a nasty frost. A frost can cause a lot of damage, it can kill young plants that aren't hardy, and it can damage the looks of your flowering plants. If you're growing plants for food then it's important to ensure they aren't affected by frost as this could seriously hinder your harvest.
