I planted my tomatoes out last Monday (11th May). I knew it was a bit early but they were over a foot tall and looking great (I live in south Devon). The forecast said nighttime temps would be about 9, which is just about Ok. Then on the late forecast he said there might be FROST! So there I was at 10.30 pm, out there with a torch, throwing fleece over my plants, worried I would lose them all.
It didn't go down below 5, and my plants have been unprotected since Tuesday morning. I have to say they are looking very happy and green and healthy so far.
The same can not be said for the few French beans I put out at the same time. Big mistake. Luckily I have some more in the mini-greenhouse.
