I have a shed but to be honest it is not much warmer ill just take my chances see what happenes i might put them out during the day in the night for a few days to lesson the blow i have far to many plants apart from the sweet peas and can afford to loose over half of them. They were brought in for a couple of days in december when the cover tore on the greenhouse and i just put them back out. I just have to pray.

Thanks for all the advice

I took them in as they were starting to freeze. I am growing campanula carpactica, snow in summer, aubrita, sweet peas, dianthus deltoids. They have managed fine so far and i wouldnt have took them in otherwise.

Thanks for the reply

Its my first post so be gentle. I have been growing plants in a small unheated mini greenhouse since september. The plants have managed fine coping with the temperatures as the greenhouse seemed to provide enough protection however due to the cold temperatures of -6 and below i brought them in the house. They will have been indoors for 2 weeks will i need to harden them off or should i just put them back out in the greenhouse when it warms up a little as i cant keep them in the house theres no room and i am growing a reasonable amount of plants.

Thanks for any replys
