Scallion Seedlings

I was wondering if anyone knows how early you can transplant scallions outdoors. Do I need to wait until after the last frost date, or can they withstand some cold nights? I've sown my seeds indoors (under lights, and in front of a sunny window) and they are already a couple of inches long! Any thoughts would be appreciated!

The stronger the seedlings when they are transplanted the quicker they will mature& the higher the survival per-cent.
That said yes the onions will tolerate cold nights, Yes after hardening off the seedlings may be transplanted now.

RE: Scallion Seedlings- Thank you

Thanks for the information yiorges-z5il! I can start hardening them off, and make some room for other things to start under the lights now.
