Adam, with the temps we have been getting and the longer term forecast i don't think a wrapped shelter is enough. Ropelights seem to be the way forward which keeps temps inside a few degrees warmer as well as keeping the worst of the frost away. I would imagine -6c is close the the limit for these anyway depending on the size.

Also, perhaps an overhead shelter of some sort to keep the wet off.
