Can I put young plants in a mini greenhouse in April ready for the planting outside in May.

yes its a good idea to keep the frost off them. however during sunny days like we have just had the inside can get very hot. leave the flaps open so air can circulate or if you have the energy; pop them outside in the day and back in at night.

The main thing to watch out for with mini g'houses is the wide swing in temp on a sunny day. The temp can whizz up to over 30 very quickly, so use shade netting over it on sunny days.
