Three resources for last frost date by area:
(these read between May 2 and May 31 for last-frost for my approximate area).
here’s a map for the UK: http://www.vegetableseeds.net/category_s/153.htm
and another: http://www.gardenfocused.co.uk/adjust-dates-uk.php
Something not entirely clear for Australia: http://www.geocities.com/mastergardener2k/frostaustralia.html
Of course, even with a chart, it helps to look at the weather on a day-to-day basis at the beginning and end of the season.
And I’ve planted some peas and put my first butternuts in the ground.

The dates the Australian one gives for Sydney are pretty much what we count as winter. Both the locations they give are coastal cities, the dates for Canberra and Darwin would be very different (I don’t even know that Darwin has frost days…)
I could find a better one if I dug more, probably. Ours change a lot, too – New York City vs. Elmira (Coast vs. inland) is a good example.
Mmm, fresh-picked peas. Someday I’ll have a garden to grow them in.
I don’t really have places to put them. (Also, at the moment, insufficient brain/cycles, sadly.)
That makes sense.
