I'd uncover them then jools and just keep an eye on them in terms of watering etc. You can pot them on once they're a few inches high 

Eggs, and cooking with them

Plenty of time MrsG. 

They'll get a bit leggy and they're at risk from damping off if they're left undercover too much jools, so it's a good idea to uncover them once you have some growth. Are they on a windowsill?Turn them each day if they are, because they'll always grow towards the light.

David - I had no idea you were so handsome....

He was in the garden at Boboli. Some other interesting items there. I'll see if I can find them. I must download the ones I took in the sun in the garden yesterday. Don't know where I put the card reader though...

This is a glass sculpture in Murano,near Venice :
