Is it too early to hook up the hose to water them? I’m Zone 5 in the Hudson Valley and last frost isn’t til mid May…any tips? thanks!April 11, 2011 at 12:53 am #29673 AnonymousFrost won’t cause a hose or hose bib to freeze and break, it needs to be really cold, so you should be fine. We have turned our hoses on (I also live in zone 5 in the Hudson Valley).Author PostsViewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total)You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
