If you use bubble wrap alone it will keep out alot of light, and we are now at the time of year when as much light as possible is needed for your plants. Try the builders merchants if you have one near you, for someheavy weight clear plastic, sold by the metre, then fix it with strong parcel tape or duck tape. It is worth putting bricks or something on the ground bars it to stop it blowing away, or use the pegs sold for rose arches to fix them to the ground. If you have a hedge or strong shrubs nearby you can tie it to those with good string.
Mind, if you spend that much on it, you might want to wait and save up for s small cloche or tiny greenhouse made of wood or aluminium - some are not expensive if you add up all the bits you might need to keep the one you have grounded and watertight.
