When I still had my vegetable garden I always used "vliesdoek" to protect from light frost in autumn and spring. 
According to a manufacturer in Holland the translation is crop cover fleece (made of UV stabilized polypropylene spunbonded nonwoven). 
It is very light-weighted and the leaves don't get the freeze burns caused by wrapping the plants in plastic. It is also very cheap.
