HI;

I have cauliflower, broccili and cabbages in a cold frame and have to move to them to allotment tonight. Will they survive? I been putting it off for last 3 weeks.

Thanks

I planted my brassicas & lettuce out in raised beds a month ago with a fleece cloche over them and they did just fine. I took off the fleece last Thursday and they are still fine because they are well established (not much growth yet though).

I would suggest covering young plants with fleece for a week or two yet, my spuds all got burned with the frost on Saturday night.

I took a chance and planted out my brassicas a few weeks ago. I covered them with fleece and they are doing fine. I keep and eye on them daily to make sure there is no damage and so far I have got off lightly.

The weather is so annoying, a bit of sun and we have hope then the temp drops and you have to resort to fleece for yourself and the veggies!!

A bit fed up here!!
