Random Question - seed sewing

Hi all

Possibly a silly question not sure.  Was considering sewing some seeds indoors just to get them started last night but then I had this weird thought ........ is it wrong to sew seeds at in the evening?

The question won't leave me now.  I work full time so don't have time to sew seeds in the morning and my weekends are pretty full at the min, so I'm genuinely asking the question ... Can I sew veggie / flower seeds indoors in the evening (they'll be placed on a window sill in propagator etc).

Look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    Sewing them is tricky, sowing them isn't  ;)

    Joking apart, I can't see any problem whatsoever with sowing at night. The main thing is to have them in a suitable spot for the available daylight  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    I don't think it makes any difference Carol. I think the main worry is sowing too early rather than anything else  :)
  • We sow many veg seeds indoors as the soil outside just stays so cold for too long to allow them to get going.
    Yes we do them in the day but then we can do so.
    The seeds wont know that you have sown them at night. Always worth a go and then when you are there during the day you will have seedlings that you can transplant out when they are ready.
