Hi everyone.
I have been growing my veg seedlings in a vented large pollytunnel . I have a question as it is opensided polytunnel do I still need to harden of the seedlings before planting them in the garden. my maunge tout are so ready to go in .

    I put my seedlings, (flowers not veg) into those plastic GH’s after coming out of the glass GH’s, I just leave the zips open all day, close at night for a while then plant out. They harden off on their own, I’d have far to much to be able to put them out and take them in every night.
    So I would assume you poly tunnel will be the same. 
    The weather has taken a turn for the better so we are on the up, 😀
