Tomato seedlings into coldframe ??

Posted by patsyann 7b (My Page) on

I planted seeds April 18, transplanted yesterday into larger pots and would like to put out into cold frame. Temps drop to 8C during night and get to about 12C during day, weather most days cloudy with rain. Can they go out now? I know I wouldn't like to live in a cold frame right now, but I don't want them getting too leggy in the house.

So 46 degrees at night to 54 degrees in the daytime? Wow weird weather for zone 7B? I'd think your could have been planted out by mid-April like the rest of zone 7.

Anyway, yes I think they should be able to go into the cold frame as it will be much warmer in there than it is outside the cold frame. You may have to double check the night temps in it and maybe add some little heat now and then but they will tolerate those temps.
