When sewing seeds, am not sure what the temp ranges given mean for (a) germination and (b) after germination has occurred.
From what I can see they seem to fall into two categories the first of which is ones which say sew at 10 - 20 degrees. Now, does that mean that if they were sewn in a greenhouse in February which was heated just to keep the frost at bay that this would be warm enough - the only other option I have is to sew them in the house but surely that would be too warm (house is normally 18 - 21 celsius)?
In category number two there is the seeds that need 60 - 80 degrees. So with these would I start these in Feb indoors? Then, once germinated, what temperature would they need? Really, I don't have space to start them indoors but am not sure that my 6ft x 6ft greenhouse will be warm enough if heated just by one paraffin heater?
Want to give the seeds their best chance and feel the above points are very important otherwise it's just a lot of wasted effort and lots of little seeds that don't get to reach maturity!!!!
What's the scoop, heeeelp!!!
This is quite a big subject to cover, although basically the germination temperature is the temperature of the soil not the surrounding (ambient) temperature.
Perhaps the simplest way to explain this, is for me to direct you to where one source of the information you are looking for is.
Open up my website......go to alphabetic index.........click on 'M' and have a look in 'My Set up'......after that go to 'S' and look in 'sowing seed'.
Once you have read that, and if you still you need guidance, then get back to the forum and I am quite sure between us we will answer your questions.
