Getting through the first summer

Hi all,

I make it a rule here in hot, humid Indiana in summer, to keep all bulb 
seedlings under ca. 30 months of age indoors under fluorescent lights 
through summer and winter.  The house is air conditioned in summer to ca. 
75 F and heated in winter to ca 70 F.

One they have been through two years of growth, the summer growing seedling 
pots can go outdoors in summer, and the winter growing seedlings can go 
into the greenhouse in autumn.

I still lose some from every batch.
