Fleece might be enough for a light frost, perhaps not enough for a heavier one. Raise the plants off the floor if possible and cover with more fleece, old blankets etc or use a frost protection heater.

Fleece can be left on for a few days as light gets through it. Heavier covers must be taken off.
