    I've grown some Courgettes from seed on my windowsill and they are growing quite fast so I'm wondering would they be okay sitting in the greenhouse until they are able to go outside.

    Hi ,

    Think you are a bit too early/eager with them :smile:, they are warmth lovers, though if they are too big for the house you will have to put them in the greenhouse and hope there are no frosts, assuming you have no heat in there ?
    Potting them on to a 12" + tub when needed; you can keep them in the greenhouse all summer if you have the space ! though they often get covered in mildew so perhaps not that good for nearby plants; better outside and an area with loads of manure and water.

    Probably worth sowing some more in a few weeks time so they will be ready to plant out in mid May or so when its really warmed up.
