Char, I have a little electric heater I turn on at sundown. I throw some old blankets over the outside, then a tarp over the blankets so the heat doesn't fly out. I remove the blankets and tarp at sunrise and turn the heat off. The sun heats it up to about 80 durning the day. If it gets to hot I open up the ends. Nothing fancy but effective. I get a two month jump on the germination.

Subject: [iris-photos] Iris Seed Germination
I think were all anxious for bloom season to arrive. Still three months away here in Colorado but I do have some seeds germinating. First photo is how the seeding area looked the end of January. I covered the "A" frame the 5th of February and two weeks later I have a few seedling poking their leaves through. I keep a little heat (very little) inside at night to keep from refreezing - 38 to 40 at night.
