Gene, Thanks for your input. I think I will line things up on the  ground 
on the south face of the greenhouse. I'll rig something up to hold  some 
rowcover firmly. Wind is always a problem out here on the plains! Good luck  
with all your potting up. It's long hours this time of year. The cheery little  
faces of winter aconite abound. And this am saw the first red winged 
blackbird.  Kathy

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.

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
