I sowed some seeds yesterday into pots in my cold greenhouse - lupins, poppies, courgette and pumpkin (on some staging) just to make a stab at getting started. I covered each of the pots with old transparent plastic fruit containers (like mini greenhouses within the greenhouse) to keep the cold off them at night. We had a bad frost last night - I had to defrost the car this morning - and I am now worried that my work will be wasted? Any advice / thoughts? I am an apprentice at this game.

Hi Newtothisgame, you have no real way of knowing yet as the seeds are just gone in, so it might be a good idea to bring them inside and you should know in a few days as you might get more frost
