Glad you've resolved the problem SLouise. Up here we're resigned to the fact that sowing a lot of stuff has to be done later unless you have a conservatory or a proper greenhouse. I sowed some cornflowers outside directly into pots a few weeks ago, just in the shelter of the house wall. They're about 2" high now and growing well. I only use the plastic greenhouse thingy for my tomatoes, which are on the kitchen windowsills just now, and a few pelargoniums. Not much else. As others have said - it's the difference between night and daytime temps that causes a lot of problems with early sown stuff, and then ventilation.
