Forty-five degrees F. should be fine, although, the warmer it gets, the faster your plants will grow. Warm season veggie seeds won't germinate if the soil is too cold. The soil temperature is key. Your university cooperative extension should have soil temperature readings available to the public, or you can take your own.
