We have a polytunnel, its only about a degree warmer in there than the outside at night, it heats up big time under the sun of course. We'll see how next year goes, first years tend to go well due to lack of pre-existing stuff in the soil.

Anyway, we found the tomatoes to be absolute prima donnas early on, wilting at the slightest change to their situation, we were covering them at night and bringing up literal hot water bottles to keep them warm! Aside from that though, they don't actually like the heat (relatively speaking), they're apparently grown in the shade in very hot countries.
