do you mean outside or in a greenhouse, if its outside then not until all danger of frost has passed and even then harden them off for a week or two before hand. In a greenhouse do whatever need to be done and if its a cold greenhouse cover them up at night if cold is forecast, in either case if the cold doesn't kill them it will severly set them back

My grandad used to say "If you drop your trousers and place your bum on the soil and its not cold, then its time to plant".

This probably dosent help you much. Once the rish of frost has pased unless you cover them with a bit of fleece at night.

My peas went in their growing position over the weekend. Carrots were sown several weeks ago.
