Starting Seeds for Spring Gardens
Just the opposite indoors here, with thick stone walls and small windows, and none at the back, this house was built to conserve cool in summer and to keep out the wind from the north in winter, so not much light. We out in a roof window when we renovated but if I put my seeds near this they get leggy very quickly. So this year I have been encouraged by a friend who grows orchids to have a grow tent. I could not afford a professional one so I have lined an old plastic, metal framed 'wardrobe' with Mylar fabric. I got a cheap red/blue LED grow light from China, so we'll see how starting seeds in there goes.
I have a cold frame outside in the sunniest spot and this works well for hardening off little plants, this needs repairing if only the rain would stop. Dampening off could be a real problem this year, so to choosing when to plant out. Usually during April I am carting seed trays in and out of the house to a table outside and covering them or bringing them in at night....a big job! I will try and get some photos today of progress. My tenant is coming over to strim the weeds off the inside of the proposed greenhouse, it is sunny at the moment. At least I can order the plastic roofing if it rains!
