It will be a while before my toms go to the GH 

Hardy plants are tough, they will grow faster with the daytime warmth of the GH y but for years I grew them all outside with no protection

A cold GH gives some weather protection but you can't keep it warm.The temperature out there on a winter's night is just as low as on the roof and colder than up against the house. 

Yes, we have thermometers everywhere

Ventilation is very important

OH's welding mask photos weren't that great Claire.

But the eclipse viewing was very good

Stress? us and them Fishy

I've got added stress, I have to keep a friend's tomato seedlings alive for a week while she's on holiday. Still tiny, on kitchen windowsill. Didn't sow mine till today.

Good eclipse here, clear. Would be embarrassed to show photos after those I'm seeing on here

For hardy perennials you can leave the vents open now, and the door. My doors haven't been shut for weeks. I only close down for gales and the vents sort themselves out. As you know Fishy, my gardening style is not as precise as some but the plants grow. I water in the morning while the night are still coldish.

Another thing to consider for later is shading, it reduces the stress.

Flowers under a hedge

Don't choose anything to tall or it makes the hedge die off at the bottom. Violets, primroses, snowdrops, lovely

I think that's too all-over red for Red Edge but I haven't a better suggestion

Another Unknown Plant ...

Thyme is a possibility with the strong smell. I'd cut it back to base. It will either grow or it won't but those bits will never look good again

Exposing roots to sun light

I think it's a good idea to do that for kids, so they can see what happens. If the bulb doesn't survive another year it's worth the sacrifice
