The temperature dosent get quite as low here on the south side of Dublin as they report at Dublin airport etc..

I grew my Tomatoe plants from seed and they got too big for the house and were getting root bound in the pots which were sitting in the greengouse for the last couple of weeks (with no ill effects) so I thought I would go for it and plant them.

It's almost midnight now and it is still 8 or 9 deg.C inside the greenhouse. I'll keep my fingers crossed for the next couple of weeks though.

Thinking of planting my tomatoes out in the tunnel too. They are taking off in the pots and I can see roots everywhere now so time to decide.

I've a little greenhouse more-or-less the same as yours Luis and last night the temp fell to 5 C (which was higher than I expected considering it was frosty). The toms and peppers are showing signs of manganese deficiency (which I've tried to correct with a dilute dose of tom & nettle feed), but I reckon it's time they flew the nest. This weekend, with any luck.

I have tomatoes that have been in the tunnel now for two weeks. They're fine. I have fleece in case of a late frost.
