so, this year will be my first 'proper' attempt at raising anything from seed. i have propogators, cell trays, thermometers, plant labels by the many and am ready to get going
in my current temporary residence (will be moving in June/July) i have no greenhouse (and no chance of getting one). i dont even have a plastic growhouse, maybe it would be worthwhile getting one? so am limited to indoor window sills.
to make it more difficult, the house is west facing, so all windows are either east or west, none being particularly well lit although its far from dingy and dark.
i have approx 300 cell modules to sow in aswell as 60x 6cm pots for bigger seeds.
ive put thermometers around the window sills of where i think the best place for these propogators is, as at last night around 9pm temp was 20c, this morning at 7am 15c. so maybe slightly lower than seeds need (isnt it between 17-23 average?) though having said that im guessing the seeds would be warmer within a propogator than in the open room. window sills particularly can be colder, would it be worth putting a bit of fleece or some other warm material underneath the propogators on the window sill?
