Like tall cloche which you peg to the ground?   Or like a polytunnel which has got hoops permanently sunk/concreted into the ground?

The line of questioning was to determine how readily you might be able/willing to heat any seeds you did germinate.  It is fairly easy to partition an area inside a permanent walk-in polytunnel.

Many people make the mistake of starting too early, leading to the combined problem of heating costs, damping off and leggy/spindly plants.

Check your seed packet instructions carefully but do ask about specific veg on these forums before you sow.  :D
