As this question is in the greenhouse and polytunnel section, I thought the structure itself should be adequate protection?   :happy:   Cheers,    Tony.

you'd be very wrong then, tony!
The temperature in an unheated can still drop much too low for tender plants, so extra protection is advisable - if you have to keep them inside the greenhouse.

I think poly keeps them warmer if you have enough to make a tent over them, but make sure to let them have some air tomorrow as they will get humid inside it. Fingers crossed for you Yana? not enough room to bring them indoors for a couple of nights?

Because of the bottleneck I have, as posted in other forum, I have no room to bring them in. Will cover with plastic tent and then remove tomorrow
