    Default Planting out

    Started veg out in heated greenhouse and transferred when ready to cold greenhouse for 7 days. Is it considered warm enough to plant out.alternativelymy raised beds have a framework above with plastic sheeting would this suffice

    I'd be going a bit steady with those I think in case we have some frosty weather - the problem is that even if your plants survive OK they really need to keep growing continuously, as being checked will affect how edible the end result is. If you have plastic covers available I'd put those on for a few days first to warm the ground a bit, then see how the weather forecast in your area looks.

    Hi Barton and welcome.
    Where do you live as local weather conditions may be relevant.
    Personally, I wouldn't plant anything outside at the moment as the weather is too changeable.

    Hello and welcome to the vine Barton
    Like the others have said I'd leave your plants were they are just now, i've got lettuce in guttering waiting for the warmer weather then some early carrots in buckets that will stay in my GH for a while yet.
