Try covering with a blanket during the night when it is the coldest and uncover in the daytime. It might help to seek out leaks of cold air in your greenhouse and take care of those areas where your plants are being affected by that seapage.

Jim, place cuttings directly into the ground in a protected area. Or place pots with cuttings directly into a ground trench in a protected area.

Your house should afford more protection than the cuttings need. Make sure one or two leaf nodes are below soil level. Place your pots on the ground and surround with mulch. You can take your cuttings in the spring and insert directly in the ground or pots. This may be advantageous to you.
