Hi

Stay in Glasgow and sowed carrot seeds ten days ago in a large 38" plant pot with poor compost/sand mix. I have left it outside, uncovered, and while the frosts seem to have stopped I am wondering if a have been a bit quick...should I have started it inside, do they need a bit of heat to get going? It has been pretty mild here, if wet and windy.

Thanks

I would put a bit of see through cling film over them to be safe, helps germination and helps avoid them getting too cold to be honest, just in case the weather changes.
