I just ordered a frost blanket for plants that will be arriving soon. Only 40% light transmission but protects by as much as 10 degrees. Will use it only at night.
Here is a picture of our holding bed:

Hi Kathy
We are setting our trays of containers (5 pint size.. nothing
smaller) on the gravel along a stone wall on the east side of the greenhouse
out of the prevailing wind. I would not set them up on shelves... that
lowers the temps more... Contact with soil (gravel, blacktop, etc) out of
prevailing wind and double cover with remay. Pull the cover during the day,
cover at night.
More freezing temps forecast at night next week, but we will go
ahead and move plants out that have not been in a greenhouse all their life,
plants still dormant. Then we cross our fingers.
Oh, and dry is better than soggy wet when cold hits.

From: owner-gardenchat@hort.net [mailto:owner-gardenchat@hort.net] On Behalf Of Gene, I can identify with "out of room" in the greenhouse. I am wondering

if it would work to put some newly potted gal. perennials out on shade
shelves and cover them with a row cover. These shelves are off the ground
about
2'. It is still getting down to slightly below freezing at night. What do
you  think? Kathy
