I sowed a selection of seeds in Feb, Berkeya, Francoa, Cobaea Echinacea and Monarda.
They have all started to germinate. I have them in the house at the moment as my greenhouse is unheated. Am I ok to now put them in the greenhouse or is it still to cold.
I live in Bolton.



forecasting a frost tonight here in the midlands , I cover anything tender in the greenhouse with a double layer of bubble plastic but my greenhouse is 1/2 block walls and double glazed

they will need some protection on the night. When they are about 4 leaves or larger they will be ok overnight unless a very severe frost is forecast.
my seedlings are in a propagator at 10-12 degrees on a night. but uncovered during the day. hope that helps.

Thanks for your replies. I do have one of those plastic greenhouses inside my glass greenhouse ( for extra shelving) so if I zip that up at night perhaps that would be ok?
