I am starting seeds for the first time using peat pellets. They are working great. Question though, I have tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers starting. After only 4 days my cucumbers are like close to 3 inches high. My tomatoes are just now starting and my peppers have yet to come up. Can I take the cucumbers out and pot up and leave the other in for a bit?? I bought some 9oz dixie cups to pot up until about 3 more weeks. Temperature here in SC has been very warm but just afraid to plant outside just yet.

RE: Question....

if soil temp is 60F & night temp 50F then go ahead & set cucumbers out. tomatoes & peppers are cold sensitive... set out after night temp are 60F or more.

RE: Question....

Temp still dips down in the mid 40's here and there. That's why I just may pot up for a week or so until the weather becomes more stable. That's why I was wondering if it would be OK. Never grow cucumbers before.
