Hardening Off

My dwarf hollyhocks and lupins have gone into the cold frame for hardening off. Should be aloud out in about 10 days - yay something else to plant! Is it called a cold frame because ever since they went in there the sun has disappeared and the temperature has dropped considerably? Hmmm. The cold frame 's plastic, which isn't as good as glass but was slightly cheaper and a lot less breakable.
The lupins are in home-made recycled paper pots, which are great for the environment but do tend to dry out really quickly. The good thing is they can go straight in the ground as they are so as not to disturb those temperamental lupin roots. Now just got to find some space. . .
