I have some germinated seedlings that need light. Cavalo Nero, Cut and come cabbage, Romanesco broccoli, Pak Choi etc. I have a small east facing window, enough space for two trays on the south facing window (Lupins and Tomatoes there atm). If I fleeced them in an unheated polytunnel, will the brassicas survive?

They should survive seeing as most brassica are outside in the winter months anyway albeit dormant but out in the frost. Not sure about the pak choi though.

Still to early for seeds not enough light or warmth gardening is about patience.
