Q.Can I Move My Seed Starters Outside Now?

Zone Nashville, TN | Anonymous added on March 25, 2021 | Answered

Hi. I am completely new to gardening and I am learning as I go. I don’t have any fancy equipment, but I do the best I can with what I have. I started my seeds indoors inside recycled bottles and seasoning containers. I started them around two weeks ago and they had been sitting in the window frame. Unfortunately, my family has made me move them outside of the house. The last frost date is not until around April 15th, but I don’t have anywhere else to move them. Will moving them outdoors now impact them too much?
