Flax early frost tolerance

Looks like I may have a chance to out flax in around the last week of April in Northern ND. It will take a while for it to emerge. Do you worry about a May frost or not on flax? Last frost is usually may 15-20 or so. Tia

It is a little stronger than canola, but only by a little margin. Lost some low ground a few years back, didn't think it was too bad but thinning out the stand just a bit really brought on weeds in them spots

Our Flax got hit pretty hard by frost a few years ago. I have learned to not seed it too early. It may not quite kill it, but it sure turns it into a whimpy plant.

Ok thanks.. Not sure what to do.. See what happens the next two weeks. Hate to sit and do nothing once. The wheat is in. Wheat, canola, flax, soybeans, corn. Corn is most frost tolerant but probably most cold soil affected.
