in The potting shed
Hi bunny, all I know is that I've started seeds off earlier than that what most traditional advice would be for the last 2 years on my kitchen windowsill heated by a rad and have had on the whole great results. Once I think they are strong enough, out they go into my coldframes which are in a sheltered spot. Granted some might be a bit leggy but in my experience that goes when I pot them up as I bury their leggy stems deep.
It does depend on your location and your growing on conditions
By the end of the week,cloudy and cold-top daytime temperature around 3/ 4C -and hard frosts with a bitter easterly wind, the wind -chill will make it feel below freezing

Which cheek is that Bunny?
I was out in the garden with a vest on today.
-3.3C at 6.30am this morning (nr Leicester) It was below freezing in the unheated greenhouse, too. Coldframe fared better at +2C. Still a month of Winter to go, don'tchaknow..
The latest weather news is it is going to stay cold for a while yet-but the easterly winds will turn into a "less cold" northerly over the next few days-there may be some white stuff for some and frosts for most
Still not Spring yet
Was trying to snow here earlier (just south of Sheffield). Very cold, I wouldn't be surprised if we have snow tomorrow, the weather forecast on the local news has said that we should get some over the weekend.
Just hope it goes by Monday, still haven't got snowshoes or skis for the pushchair - and biggest little one's school is uphill most of the way (makes for an interesting return journey!!). Typical, we've not had much weather during the half-term holiday, it's getting ready to return when school re-opens.
Think I must've upset the weather gods somehow!
Discodave- bet you were not out in just a vest today
