The Q&A Archives: seedlings

Question: Can I move my seedlings outdoors to a sunny location, as soon as they've germinated, (with no true leaves), if the nights are consistantly staying in the mid-forties and warmer? If not, what night time temps are acceptable?
Thanks for your time, since I'm sure it's getting much busier at this time of year!

Answer: Dianne,

Yes you can but it may cause them to grow more slowly. Just don't move them to a full sun location suddenly or they will sunburn. Start with some morning sun and then bright shade and over a week or get them accustomed to the full sun.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
