    All those are just germinating in my cold greenhouse. You can start tomatoes and cucumbers now on a window ledge. 

    It would help with advice if you could put on your profile where in the country you live

  • I have started some seeds off but I have got a heated propagator which reall  makes a difference. But before I had one of those I always started mine off on the window cill in the kitchen in small ordinary propagators then when they were ready prick out and pot on into modules I had them in the greenhouse. If it was going to be quite cold I covered them over with horticultural fleece and for me it always work well, I don't know what part of the country you are in, I am on the south coast so not quite as cold as other places though you wouldn't think so today  Brrrrrr! image
