    You want it frost free-but that is still too cold for tomatoes-especially overnight-perhaps put them out there during the day-with a bit of protection- and bring them in at night?

    If you are thinking of putting them in their final positions-now-strongly advise against it

    How big are they?

  • I can turn the heat up what sort of tem should i be looking at there at there first leef stage.

    I grow all my veg at home then take to allotment but always done every thing in my conservatoy in plastic greenhouse but now we moved so dont have one. many thanks

    So if you prick them out -bury the stem up to the first leaves-they should be ok for a bit-the problem you have is that temperatures day and night are just too cold at the moment -even in a greenhouse with a bit of heat.
