“Hardening Off” Seedlings – The key is for seedlings to get acclimated to the different elements. For 1 to 2 weeks move seedlings from inside to outside to get them accustomed to sunlight and cooler temperatures. Seedlings can be moved into a cold frame for protection against extreme wind, temperature, sunlight, etc. Gradually increase exposure to sunlight and cooler temperatures while decreasing the frequency of watering. It will then be time to transplant your seedlings!
