What night-time temperatures are too cold for "tender plants" such as tomatoes, squashes, annual bedding plants, etc.?
Rate This FAQ
Generally, anything close to freezing, which is 32 degrees. That doesn't take into account other variables such as hardening off plants prior to transplant.
Many ways of dealing with cold temperatures like wall-o-waters, floating row covers, high tunnels which are all season extenders to deal with freezing temperatures.
Here is a table with vegetables and average planting dates to avoid freezing of warm season vegetables http://www.co.utah.ut.us/dept/exten/Data/vegetableutah.pdf

- We would like to know if Legacy Buffalo Grass would work alone in our back yard or whether we should mix it with something else. We are looking for a low water, low mowing frequency product that will work well with dogs who live inside but do run hard and play on it. We also like the pollen free feature of Buffalo Grass as one of our dogs has allergies and chews at her feet after being outside. We currently have mostly Bermuda grass and are in the process of killing it off. We live in Hooper and our yard is approximately 1/2 acre with a few young trees along the borders (which of course will get bigger). The trees are Mulberries, Cottonwoods, Red Oaks, Tulip Trees and Austrian Pines. Suggestions for mixes we have heard are Sheep's Fescue and Bella Bluegrass. Also, is there a place in Utah where we can buy these grasses so we don't have to pay a large price for shipping?
