Try a temporary cold frame

There's a lot of pressure for protected space now - it isn't safe to plant things out, and tender plants need to harden off from the greenhouse. 'Pop-up' covers or temporary frames like this substantial one, with inner mesh flaps and air vents, can be slotted together in spring and taken apart for storage once they've been useful. This one has lasted for about five years and the plastic is just starting to break down, so this may be its last year.
