Temperature for Seeds

Asked February 6, 2018, 11:33 AM EST

I have a glass room on the back of my house that gets plenty of sun. It does not have heating or air conditioning. So it's pretty cold out there now. I would like to start some seeds. Is it too cold to start - should I bring in at night. Is this just a bad idea due to no heat in room. I have not tried this before.

Scroll down to "Tips for Quick Germination" for temperature requirements and how to heat specifically. You could try one or a combination of these ideas to reach the temperature needed.

While you in our vegetable section, check out some of the other help. It's a great site.
