Currently I have some cucumbers, 1 tomato plant, bush beans, sunflower plant, Basil, and some peppers. Next month the night time temps dip below 50F.
What is the cold tolerance of these plants? And how could I protect them from the cold to keep them going a little longer? We don't get any snow but during out winter the temps will be in the middle to lower 40s, and there could be some rare nights where the temps drop into the upper 30s.
I know the Basil will not make it long, but If I can keep the cucumbers and bush beans alive for another month and a half that would be good. Should I bother covering the tomato and peppers? How about the Sunflower? I heard as long as their is no snow the sunflower would be fine. Thanks
