    Sadly not Harry - but I share your pain! I am seriously considering bringing one of my new shelving units back in from the greenhouse and standing it in front of the French doors just to get enough space to start stuff off.

    Yep, got a whole house of them Harry, just no sun coming thru them. Most of my stuff is by the south facing patio doors too.

    I never seemed to have any trouble in the past, it's since I joined GC that I'm growing more tender things and starting earlier :)

      Most of my windowsills aren't deep enough to put trays on, so can't help you out Harry, sorry! Spare room's almost full as well. :doh:

        Conservatory is much colder than normal for this time of year ... dropping to 6C overnight ... so lots of carrying-in and carrying-back-out each evening/morning.

        Experience tells me I'll drop a tray soon ... although today I was good and talked myself out of carrying a whole armful of seed trays at once!

            Same problem here - no space at all. Some seedlings don't seem to be growing very well, but Cobae scandens is already 2 1/2 feet high and would like more space. :biggrin:

                Nice mug-shot ... I also liked your tea-drinking cuddly toy.
