    Gardening...with a greenhouse

    i rarely have luck starting my seedlings indoors, i've been told not enough light b/c they get tall and skinny then die. we just bought a small farm and i have room and the budget for a greenhouse. my question is...can I successfully start seeds in there or do I still need to start them indoors? We are in southern PA.

    Thanks for any insight/experience!

    Re: Gardening...with a greenhouse

    I don't know what it where Pa is, I'm in the UK sorry.
    I do horticulture for a living and have done for 30yrs.
    Every different seed generally need certain temps to germinate some even need to go into a freezer for a while to stratisfi them to break the germination so depends what you wanting to grow, you can get cheep propagator from any garden centre or DIY store ,depend how big you want it and how many seed trays you want it to hold
    I grow seeds in a heated propagator to regulate the temperature properly then once the have germinated I take them out if there and put them still in a warm place but with diffused light as direct sunlight can scorch the new seedlings, these still need to be kept at a Certain temp depending what they they are like, but deffo frost free.
    Then hardened off before they go outside. Unless they houseplants like
    Hope this helps a bit
