When can I move my plants out of the kitchen and into the greenhouse?

Hi, I am now the proud owner of a green house and have been growing plants from seed indoors. I don't want to kill them off but need to know when it would be safe to move them into the green house.



I think they should be fine to move now as long as no frosts are forecast - if your greenhouse is unheated. If there is a frost after you've moved them, lay a length of fleece over the top of them overnight to be safe.

If you get a sunny day, open the door of the greenhouse for a few hours.

Thanks, we've got a bad weekend ahead, so will leave it another week, will go and buy some fleece also. Thanks again!

It also depends on what the seedlings are and where you live.
