    That could be a problem pete with such an early start, I am carefully hardening them off for a couple of weeks to minimise any shock.Bringing them back indoors like last night, it was only 3C.

    What to do now with my onion and shallot seedling?

    A weak feed might help but I think it has more to do with amount of daylight. They pick up quickly from now on.Without lights I don't think sowing earlier would make much difference.
