i think you should leave them in the pots and just position them in the water.

Hi all,after recently moving home at the end of november,we had to sadly leave the greenhouse behind.With money being tight at the moment ive had to resort to buying one of those 4 tier zip up greenhouse,and using the shed.My question is that if i start of my baskets in the shed,(trailing begonia tubas)will they germinate just as if they were hung in the greenhouse? as it has windows on one side,but doesnt have any means of heat.
