I did not see the original post - but plastic will rot anything under it. People here in Mass. cover lawns with plastic, or even tarps, in order to kill grass, and everything else, to re-seed. 
People here use HAY for protection in winter. It would also be a much better insulator than a sheet of plastic.

I realize the interest is covering the entire bed, and not individual  
plants, but as a word of caution:  I have known people who used regular  bubble 
wrap to protect individual tender plants without success; I know of no  one 
who has used it with success.  The plants rot over the winter.
