Using my small portable greenhouse

I just recieved a small 4 tier greenhouse & am anxious to put it to use! While I have quite a bit of experience with container gardening I am unsure if the weather is too cold to start using it outdoors?
I am in western Cincinnati.
Thank you!

RE: Using my small portable greenhouse

I would wait 2 maybe 3 more weeks. I live in NKY and it's just a bit too cold right now. What I would do is if you have room to set it up indoors to get it started and after you're sure it's gonna stay fairly warm then set it up out side. This will get your plants off to a great early start. Welcome to the world of greenhouse gardening. You can actually get a month ahead of anything grown outdoors. And you can also extend your gardening season by months. Believe it or not I just picked my last ripe tomato just the other day. It's nice having homegrown tomatoes on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Good Luck!

You can start seeds in a unheated cold green house. as long as they are Hardy. :) check out the wintersowing forum
. for those who dont have greenhouse we used milk jugs, pop bottles, n other stuff to make mini green houses to start seeds out doors in the winter :)
