Should I be worried?  I planted these out two weeks ago. Thanks for your help.

    Cold.

    They are tender plants. Don’t like cold wind or cold nights.

    oh golly.  Are they doomed, do you think?  I still have a few indoors- the ones l planted out were getting so leggy they were wrapping themselves around one another.

    They don’t look done for. Do you have any sheets of bubble wrap that you could put round them at night?

    I do have the odd bit of bubble wrap around. I’ll see if I can cobble a blanket together!  Thanks so much for the advice, pansyface 👍

    Mine are planted out but I’m covering them with a plastic mini polytunnel
     at night.
