Temperatures are due to drop to between 1 and 3 degrees tonight in Leinster.

I brought my seedlings indoors - 6 trays of Cosmos and 2 of Marigolds.

I left 2 trays out there - Astrantia and Sarracenia that germinated in the greenhouse but I covered them with a lid.

Just when we thought the really cold weather was behind us it, looks like we're going to get another blast of it. When will we see the end of it???

I'm a bit like you, Rachel, with some in and some out.  All outdoors ones have lids on and a layer of fleece.  Hoping all will stay warm.

Hope this cold spell is short lived.

Hope that it isn't back again so far I haven't moved anything out other than the sweetpea.
