Hardening off Coneflower, viola, and bellflower

About a month or so ago I started some seeds indoors: Purple Coneflower, Viola Tricolor, and Bellflower. They sprouted and are still kicking, but I never know when to move them outside! Any advice?

Thank you!

RE: Hardening off Coneflower, viola, and bellflower

plant must have at least 1 set of "true leaves" But you also need to consider the container size, outside temp, soil moisture, when watering will you dsamage the stem, direct or indirect light. to name a few...
The longer you delay & the larger the plant the chanches for survival increase.
